The Astros didn’t want to have a Game 7, but since Game 7 is now upon them they’re bringing out the big guns for the ceremonial first pitch: Hall of Famers Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio will be handing the official duties.

The press release doesn’t say who will throw to whom, but given that Biggio came up as a catcher I’d like to think it’ll be him.

In other pre-game activities, Texas’ own Matthew McConaughey will announce “Play Ball!” before the first pitch. Alright, alright, alright.
