Edmonds singles in first at-bat

SHARE Edmonds singles in first at-bat

Jim Edmonds drew a round of applause from the Wrigley bleacher fans today and was generally well-received at the plate before he ripped a Greg Maddux pitch to right for a single.

Maddux asked Edmonds if he wanted to keep the ball, and after Edmonds nodded in the affirmative, Maddux threw the ball out of play. It might have been an RBI single if Aramis Ramirez hadn’t been thrown out at the plate during the at-bat.

Edmonds’ reaction wasn’t quite as positive later when he grounded into a double-play and struck out. He finished 1-for-4.
