Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann Throw Out First Pitch on Jerry Day
The San Francisco Giants held Jerry Garcia Day at AT&T Park last night. Throwing out the first pitch were The Rhythm Devils themselves, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart. Kreutzmann’s jersey read “D Ellis No-No” for Dock Ellis, the pitcher who infamously threw a no-hitter on LSD. While out on the mound, Kreutzmann was seen putting a drop of something from a small clear vial on the ball before licking it.
In attendance was former NBA player Bill Walton who sported a Giants jersey with “I Can’t Get Enough 72” on the back. Trixie Garcia was also in attendance.
Moonalice took to the stage before the game on top of the first base dugout for a set of Grateful Dead covers. After the show, the team held a tribute for Giants fan and Bay Area resident Robin Williams, who passed away on Monday. The Giants also donated $15,000 to the Rex Foundation, a charity founded by the Grateful Dead.
