Turns out, Mookie Wilson and Bill Buckner won’t be throwing out first pitch
Longtime New York Mets Public Relations czar Jay Horwitz Tweeted a very interesting note on World Series Game 2’s ceremonial first pitch:
Forgive and forget. In a unique ceremony before Game. 2 of the WS tonight, Mookie Wilson will throw a first pitch to Bill Buckner. Nice.

Todd Fritz managed to call Bill Buckner and it turns out he’s in Idaho and has no plans of being in Boston tonight.
Cool idea … not happening.
