STILLWATER, Okla. — As part of Oklahoma State Baseball's O' Brate Stadium dedication Thursday, former President George W. Bush threw out the first pitch before the Cowboys' game with New Orleans.

Bush was scheduled to throw out the first pitch at the stadium on March 20, 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic ended the college baseball season before the event.

The 43rd president is a longtime friend of Cecil O' Brate, who pledged the money that led to building of OSU's new $60 million stadium.
