UMG Nashville’s Mike Dungan Throws Ceremonial Pitch
Music industry executive Mike Dungan, who serves as Chairman/CEO of Universal Music Group Nashville, was invited as a very special guest to throw the ceremonial first pitch at the Cincinnati Reds game on Saturday, July 23.
The Reds defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks with a 6-1 victory at Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park.
A Cincinnati native and long time Reds fan, Dungan threw the pitch to Reds outfielder Kyle Waldrop.
When asked about this memorable experience, Dungan shared with MusicRow, “In the days leading up to it, my staff tortured me with YouTube videos of the worst first pitches in history. And fuck me if every one of them raced through my mind when I stepped on that mound! But somehow I managed to throw my off-speed stinger for a strike. A big looping 38 mph strike.”
Did you know? President William Howard Taft started the American tradition in 1910 at Griffith Stadium, Washington, D.C., on the Washington Senators’ Opening Day.
