DETROIT – Opening Day in Detroit is a treasured sports tradition -- but this moment made it extra special.
For the first pitch at Comerica Park on Thursday vs. the Red Sox, Detroit sports legends gathered together to take part in the traditional ceremony.
Pistons legend Ben Wallace, Red Wings legend Nicklas Lidstrom, and Lions legend Calvin Johnson appeared near the mound -- and were joined by still-active legend, Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera.
Cabrera is in his final year before retirement.
The four of them threw pitches as the same time -- a moment worth a couple of minutes of your time. Watch it below, courtesy the Detroit Tigers:
