In about 10 minutes, Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard is going to throw the first pitch at the Mariner's game.

My friends are thinking he won't get it over the plate. That was my initial reaction too, but you know, the guy is a big baseball fan. If I remember correctly, when he was growing up, he wanted to be a pro ball player (I'm not sure how I know that). So I think he's gonna surprise us.

The game, against Chicago White Sox, starts at 7 pm.
