South Carolina QB Ryan Hilinski to throw out first pitch at Mariners' game
When the Seattle Mariners take on the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night, South Carolina QB Ryan Hilinski will be there.
Hilinski will have a special role, too, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch for the Hilinski’s Hope charity, which was started by the Hilinski family after the death of former Washington State QB Tyler Hilinski by suicide.
As you can see below, Hilinski’s Hope announced that Ryan would be throwing out the first pitch via Twitter on Friday:
