WASHINGTON–Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will throw out the first pitch Saturday in Chicago, when the Cubs host her team, the New York Yankees, I’m told. After her work on the mound, Sotomayor–raised near Yankees Stadium–will view the rest of the game at Wrigley Field in the stands with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)
This will be Sotomayor’s second time making the first ceremonial pitch. In 2009, the Bronx native pitched one when the Yankees played the Red Sox.
The Cubs on Friday beat the Yankees 3-1.
