VIDEO: Rush bassist throws out first pitch at Toronto Blue Jays home opener

Rush bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee was on hand Tuesday night to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Toronto Blue Jays home opener against the Cleveland Indians.

Lee has been a longtime Blue Jays season ticket holder and baseball fan.

“I would like to see the Blue Jays win the World Series this year,” Geddy told New York’s Q104.3 recently. “I don’t want to jinx them by saying they are going to, but I think it’s going to be a fun season. I think there are three or four teams that have a good shot at being in the playoffs: California Angels, Los Angles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals and the Toronto Blue Jays have a shot, too.”
