Chancellor Patrick Gallagher (left) threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the July 27 Pirates–Seattle Mariners game at PNC Park. His catcher was none other than Pitt head football coach Pat Narduzzi. Many alumni and their families attended the event, which is sponsored annually by the Pitt Alumni Association. The evening featured a bit of serendipity: beautiful weather, an incredible city view, and an impressive 10-1 Pirates victory. And as the duo posed together for photos, the numbers on their jerseys gave a nod to the University’s founding date of 1787. (Photo by Mike Drazdzinski)
