Former major league pitcher Steve Hargan, a South Side graduate, threw out a first pitch prior to Friday's TinCaps game.
Hargan is in town for a 50-year class reunion. He lives in California.
"This is a beautiful ballpark," Hargan said. "I was telling someone I would have liked to have played in a park like this back when I was playing back in the 60s and 70s. It's great that these young men have a beautiful stadium to play in."
Hargan played in the majors from 1965-1977. He pitched for Cleveland, Texas, Toronto and Atlanta. He had a career record of 87-107 with a 3.92 ERA.
Hargan was named to the 1967 American League All-Star team. He did not appear in the game because of an injury.
"It was really exciting," Hargan said of his playing days. "… I had some ups and downs and some injuries."
