Diana Gabaldon at Yankee Stadium Sept. 14

Diana Gabaldon practicing pitching

Well, this is unexpected news, and certainly Something Different....

Diana Gabaldon just announced on Facebook that she will be throwing out the first pitch at the Sept. 14th game between the Yankees and Blue Jays, at Yankee Stadium!

Congratulations, Diana! That's very cool, and quite an honor! Apparently the Yankees approached her publisher, Penguin Random House, and asked if she'd be willing to do it.

I just hope she doesn't tell Bree or (especially) Jem about this! Those diehard Red Sox fans might never forgive her. <g>

UPDATE 9/15/2018 9:13 am - Here's the video. Great job, Diana!
