Actor Thomas Ian Nicholas, who is best known for his role as Rowengartner in the 1993 film Rookie of the Year, threw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field on Saturday. The Cubs are celebrating Wrigley Field's 100th anniversary this season, so it's only fitting that the star pitcher returned to the mound.

No video is available yet, but there are some pictures of the 34-year-old at Wrigley.
