Colin Powell to Throw Out First Pitch in City More Violent Than Any Military Mission He'd Ever Been On

GEM MINT TEN Coliln Powell rookie card. Be dialin' people.

Returning to familiar war zone-like territory, the AP reports that "[f]ormer Secretary of State Colin Powell will throw out the ceremonial first pitch next month at the Newark Bears' home opener," a game that will also feature Patti LaBelle singing the National Anthem.

As if the night couldn't be more star-studded, the team is managed by HHR fave (and Nationals legend) Timmy "Rock" Raines.

No word as to whether former Newark players Rickey Henderson and the brothers Canseco will be on hand. Though, I'd wager to bet that former Stanford all-American tight end and the city's current Mayor Cory Booker will be.
