Jack White Will Throw First Pitch at Detroit Tigers Game

Jack White gets to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a Detroit Tigers game this Tuesday. He made the announcement on Twitter yesterday.

The tweet also mentions something White fans at the game will dig: His Rolling Record Store will also be there. That’s White’s mobile record shop housed inside a giant yellow truck. Fans will be able to rub their grimy, hot-dog-grease-covered fingers all over White’s records and purchase them, provided they haven’t spent all their money on beer and pretzels.

This may be White’s chance at gaining some Internet redemption after a recent Chicago Cubs game where he was photographed looking rather dour. And to top that off, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder showed White up by throwing the first pitch at a Cubs game a few days later and leading a singalong of ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game.’

We’re not sure how White has found the time to go to all of these baseball games, given the amount of touring he’s been doing lately. We thought he spent any downtime he might have had learning how to play covers of other artists’ songs. He and his band hit the stage again tonight and will be touring throughout much of the rest of the year.

We hope that pitch doesn’t make White too nervous and shaky. He gets that way sometimes:
