Veteran Blinded In Iraq Throws Out First Pitch [VIDEO]

This video is awesome.  A blinded Pittsburgh native, Jeremy Feldbusch, threw out the first pitch on Opening Day for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

I love this video.  It’s nice to see something of substance on Opening Day.  I’ll take a wounded veteran throwing out the first pitch instead of a dancing clown doing a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar sky hook or something.  Jeremy Feldbusch is an Army Ranger who lost his eyesight while serving in Iraq.  An I.E.D. exploded nearby when his unit came under fire.

Feldbusch represented the Wounded Warriors Project when he threw out the first pitch of the Pittsburgh Pirates home opener against the Philadelphia Phillies.  It was a great effort by Feldbusch also.  I would’ve been cheering like crazy if I was at the ballgame.  I find this video to be extremely inspiring.  The Phillies were able to beat the Pirates 1-0.  Roy Halladay went eight strong innings only surrendering two hits.  Johnathan Papelbon nailed down the save.  I guess you could say that Jeremy Feldbusch began an entire day of great pitching.
