Former Major League Baseball pitcher and native South Carolinian, Lou Brissie, will be at the August 1st RiverDogs game to sign his book and throw the ceremonial first pitch.

An unlikely major league player due to massive injuries suffered during combat in WWII, Brissie went on to play for the Philadelphia Athletics from 1947-51 and the Cleveland Indians from 1951-53.

Even if you aren't a baseball fan, the RiverDogs page has an intriguing article on Brissie's career.

Tickets for this Saturday's game can be purchased online. Game time is 7:05 p.m.
