Tim McGraw, award-winning country singer and actor, threw out the ceremonial first pitch of Game 4 of the World Series between the Mets and Royals.  His connection to major league baseball is that his father, Tug McGraw, was a pitcher for the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies during 1965 to 1984.

Tug pitched in the 1973 World Series for the Mets and again in 1980 for the Phillies.  Altogether, he made nine World Series game appearances, compiling a 2-1 record and 2.11 ERA.
