Motley Crue bassist to throw first pitch at L.A. Dodgers game

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is headed to the mound.

Sixx will throw out the first pitch in Dodger Stadium at this Sunday’s Los Angeles Dodgers game vs. the Houston Astros.

“Being from Los Angeles, this is a a huge honor for me,” Nikki wrote. “I don't know if any of you remember, but I was part of the Dodgers billboard campaign a few years ago (see image above). The whole Sixx Sense gang, my kids and Courtney are all going...Bad ass.”

The Sixx billboard was part of a celebrity-based 2009 marketing campaign by the Dodgers.

Motley Crue fire up a European tour June 5 in Moscow; they return to team up with KISS for North American dates starting July 20 in Bristow, VA.
