Before he steps into the ring at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California on July 28th to throw heat against number one contender Selcuk Aydin for the vacant WBC Interim Welterweight Championship, Gilroy's Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero, a three-time world titleholder, will throw heat of another sort when he takes the mound at the Oakland Coliseum to throw out the first pitch before Sunday's A's vs. New York Yankees game.
The fistic fireballer will be on the mound at 1:05pm.
Guerrero vs. Aydin, a 12-round fight for the WBC Interim Welterweight Championship, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Arena-Box Promotion and sponsored by Corona, DeWalt Tools and AT&T.
