2011 World Series Game 1: Bob Gibson, Bruce Sutter, Adam Wainwright To Throw Out First Pitch

The 2011 World Series is set to begin in just under an hour, as the Texas Rangers visit St. Louis for the first time ever to take on the Cardinals

While there's been plenty of controversy on Dirk Nowitzki not being allowed to throw out one of the first pitches in Arlington, there's been no such controversy with tonight's first pitch. Past and present Cardinals greats Bob Gibson, Bruce Sutter and the injured Adam Wainwright will do the honors in St. Louis before Game 1.

It's a pretty cool move on St. Louis' part. Those three pitchers have recorded the outs to St. Louis' last three World Series titles, with Gibson recording the final out in 1967, Sutter in 1982 and Wainwright in 2006. 

Game 2's first pitch will be thrown out by another past Cardinal great, Lou Brock.
