Throwing out one of the opening pitches for the Normal CornBelters baseball home game at the Corn Crib was Jim Rapp, Illinois Corn Marketing Board Chairman. He had a big wind up before throwing a pitch that was so fast it didn't even register on the meter. Wait, we didn't have a speed gun out there. Anyway he did a great job.
Chuck Zimmerman, AgWired, talked to Jim about the ICMB support for this stadium and team. Jim thinks it's great and says he wishes he had a chance to do some practice pitches before getting on the mound in front of the crowd.
You can see a lot of photos from the opener in the AgWired photo album: Normal CornBelters Corn Crib Opener Photo Album
