Telesco, McCoy Throw Out First Pitch at Petco Park

Posted Apr 13, 2013

General Manager Tom Telesco and Head Coach Mike McCoy relish the chance to throw out the first pitch at the San Diego Padres game at Petco Park.

General Manager Tom Telesco and Head Coach Mike McCoy strolled across the freshly cut grass inside the stadium.

But this wasn’t a warm Sunday afternoon at Qualcomm Stadium.  Instead it was a brisk Friday night in Petco Park as the newcomers were graced with the opportunity to throw out the first pitch prior to the San Diego Padres game.

“This is just fun,” said Telesco.  “It’s an honor that they even asked us to come out here and do this.  It’s fun to come out and meet the GM Josh Byrnes and (Manager) Buddy Black. They’ve been really great, so it’s been fun.”

Telesco's goal for the 60 feet and six inch throw to home plate in front of thousands of fans was a relatively simple one.

“I just want to hit the catcher!” he joked minutes prior to the first pitch.

You can watch Telesco and McCoy in the video above to see how they did as well as click on this photo gallery of their experience Friday night at Petco Park.
