The Indian cricket team's members are currently taking a break after the gruelling two month long Indian Premier League. Among those who finished their IPL a little earlier than they would have liked was the Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma. The opening batsman though is not missing out on his share of a fun time after he became the first Indian cricketer to throw the ceremonial 'first pitch' in the Major League Baseball.

On June 4th, Rohit Sharma, as part of pregame activity threw the ceremonial first pitch before the MLB at the Safeco Field, home ground of Seattle Mariners who took on the Tampa Bay Rays after that.

The baseball league in America has a historic ritual inviting a guest of honor to throw out a ceremonial first pitch to mark the start of the game.

Rohit Sharma is managed by IMG Reliance Talent Management and is on a 3 city US tour as part of 'Desh-Legends of Cricket Series'. Rohit will be visiting San Francisco/Bay Area, Seattle and Los Angeles where the Indian cricketer will participate in a series of cricket clinics and fan meet and greets.
