Shabazz Napier, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis to Throw Out First Pitches Tuesday at Fenway

UConn's national-champion men's and women's basketball teams will be honored in a pregame ceremony Tuesday night at Fenway Park, prior to the Red Sox-Yankees game, and it appears Boston native Shabazz Napier will throw out one of the ceremonial first pitches. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis will also throw out a first pitch.

All members of both teams have been invited to the ceremony, though it remains to be seen if all will attend. It's not known whether coach Kevin Ollie will attend, either. It is, after all, a live recruiting period (and Ollie is a Dodgers fan!).

Either way, a nice way for the Huskies to be recognized. And certainly a nice honor for Napier, who grew up down the street in Roxbury.
