    An absolutely fantastic idea!

    This game needs to be nationally televised. At the very least, it has to be available online FREE.

    Intriguing. I would imagine that Mo is a mega-hero in Panama, and that would mean a ticket to the game would be in high demand and would create scalping issues and maybe even some ugliness. Unfortunately some of his biggest fans probably won't be able to afford to go.
    Let the kids play.

    lets get one thing straight, he is not going to pitch in the game. He's retired and made it clear he would be. At best he throws out the first pitch
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Given that Mo has indicated that he is not going to pitch today and that his leg will not allow him to play CF, I think the logical thing to do is for the Yankees to tell Mo to strengthen his legs this winter and come to spring training very late (even for Mo) to play a few games in CF in preparation for playing CF in one of these exhibition games.

    This is a dream, Mo is retired. done. finished. He will not play anymore, again at best a ceremonial first pitch or maybe an Old Timers Day appearance. He even cited playing with pain in his arm this season. If he didnt play CF in Houston when it was most logical (end of season and both teams playing for nothing) time to do it, he never will.

    It would be more appropriate to have any ceremony after the game, so he could throw out the LAST pitch.
