Barta To Throw Out First Pitch at Softball

April 6, 2009

IOWA CITY – University of Iowa Director of Athletics Gary Barta will throw out the first pitch before Iowa’s softball game against intra-state rival Iowa State Tuesday at 5 p.m.

Barta has some experience throwing out first pitches, most recently at Wrigley Field in 2007, the weekend Iowa faced Northern Illinois in football at Soldier Field.

Iowa has already wrapped up the 2008-09 Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series, but can gain an additional two points with a win Tuesday.
