Bornstein To Throw Dodgers First Pitch
Chivas USA defender Jonathan Bornstein, a native of Los Alamitos and
potential member of the United States National Team for the upcoming FIFA World
Cup in South Africa, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Sunday’s game
between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies at 1:05 p.m. PT at Dodgers
Bornstein, 25, is a graduate of Los Alamitos
High School and spent his
college years at Cal Poly Pomona and UCLA. Drafted in the fourth round of the
2006 MLS SuperDraft, the defender earned 2006 MLS Rookie of the Year honors,
and was named an MLS All-Star in 2007, 2008, and 2009. He has made 29 appearances
for the United States National Team, helping the squad win the 2007 Gold Cup
and earn second place in the 2009 Confederations Cup. The United States roster for the
upcoming FIFA World Cup will be named in the coming weeks.
The last Red-and-White player to toss out a ceremonial first pitch at Dodger Stadium was Claudio Suarez, who had the honor on Aug. 11, 2008. The photo gallery for that event can be seen here.
