LOS ANGELES — President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, second counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, threw the first pitch at a recent Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game.
Following a 25-year tradition, more than 8,000 Latter-day Saints gathered at California’s Dodger Stadium for Mormon Night with the Dodgers on June 29.
The crowd greeted President Uchtdorf with a loud cheer as his name was announced. The pitch was caught by Elder William Reynolds, a member of the Quorum of the Seventy. Honorary umpire Kevin Hamilton, director of the church's Southern California Public Affairs Council, called the pitch a strike.
