Aaron Rodgers throws out 1st pitch at Miller Park
Thursday, June 9, 2011
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers threw out the first pitch at Miller Park before the Milwaukee Brewers took on the New York Mets on Thursday night.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback wore a No. 12 Brewers jersey and toss a perfect pitch to good friend, Ryan Braun.
Rodgers declined to speak to reporters, but the Packers will receive their Super Bowl rings in a private ceremony next Thursday.
Green Bay held a public celebration two days after their Super Bowl victory this year over the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 and plan to have another event when the Packers host the New Orleans Saints in the regular-season opener Sept. 8.
The Packers have received permission from the NFL to hold the ceremony despite the unresolved labor dispute.
