Padres Part-Owner Aikman Throws Out First Pitch

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Twenty-five years after drawing interest from the New York Mets coming out of high school, Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman is dabbling in baseball again.

This time it's as a part owner of the San Diego Padres.

The former Dallas Cowboys star threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Thursday's game against the Houston Astros. He bounced it in the dirt just in front of right-hander Chris Young, a Dallas native.

Aikman, a Southern California native, is an investor in the group headed by Jeff Moorad that has bought 35 percent of the Padres from John Moores and has five years to buy the rest. Moorad used to be partners with Aikman's agent, Leigh Steinberg.
