Governor Albert Bryan on Tuesday night threw the ceremonial first pitch at the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays game, according to photos of the event published by Government House.

The governor was at Fenway Park during the evening for the game, where he was joined by Tourism Commissioner Joseph Boschulte, Red Sox President Sam Kennedy, and JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes in Mr. Kennedy's private box after the pitch.

At most levels of baseball, the ceremonial first pitch is a time-honored tradition where a celebrity or a locally significant person throws the first pitch. Sometimes the ceremonial pitcher is given a cap or a jersey, but typically they are allowed to keep the baseball as a souvenir.
