Minnesota Native Tyus Jones Will Throw Out The First Pitch At Today's Twins Home Opener

April has been a good month for Tyus Jones. He helped lead Duke to the national championship, winning the tournament's Most Outstanding Player award in the process, and now he's being honored in his home state.

A Burnsville, Mn., native, Jones will throw out the first pitch at today's Minnesota Twins home opener.

 Jones won't be the only famous basketball player on the field before the Twins take on the Kansas City Royals at 4:10 PM EST. He'll have some pretty good company, in fact.

What do you all think? Will Tyus throw a strike in a big spot? He does have a flair for performing in the clutch, but we'll see.
