Now pitching for Yankees: Justice Sotomayor
NEW YORK (AP) -- Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is coming off the bench - and heading to the mound at Yankee Stadium.

Sotomayor, a Yankees fan from the Bronx, is scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch Saturday before New York's game against Boston.

As a U.S. District Judge in 1995, Sotomayor issued an injunction that led baseball players to end their strike after 7 1/2 months.

Sotomayor will throw out the pitch as part of Hispanic Heritage Month. Panama President Ricardo Martinelli is to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Friday's series opener.

Sotomayor, 55, will not be the first Supreme Court justice to throw a ceremonial pitch but she will be the first one who previously was dubbed "the judge who saved baseball."

8. Still Not Enough To Make Me Like The Yankees
The one fault that I have with Justice Sotomayor is that she's a Yankees fan. Sorry, but I had the "pleasure" of going to an Orioles/Yankees game in Baltimore one time. The Yankees fans that came down for the game were rude, drunk, and obnoxious.

14. Look at it this way.
At least she's not a Mets fan.

11. You know what? She should be CALLING the first pitch, not throwing it.
I think they could make it work. And I'd love to see her in the get-up.
