Get excited, Chicago Cubs fans. Henry Rowengartner is back—and he is all grown up.

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.

Hopefully the public address announcer was able to have a bit more success with Rowengartner's name than fictional Cubs manager Sal Martinella had in the movie:

This wasn't Nicholas' first time throwing out the first pitch at Wrigley Field. Last summer, he showed off his floater:
