Marathon Champion To Throw Out First Pitch

Meb Keflezighi, the first American to win the Boston Marathon in 31 years, will throw out the first pitch tonight at Fenway Park. The nearly-40-year-old Keflezighi outpaced a field of much younger and more highly-touted elite runners to capture the 118th  running of the marathon on Monday. Keflezighi was born in Eritrea and moved with his family to San Diego when he was 10 years old.  He crossed the finish line on Boylston Street with a time of 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds.
