Former Dover High standout, current Green Bay Packers back Kuhn to throw out All-Star game first pitch

During an interview with a York Revolution front office official back in early June, I was informed that the team was working on getting a “big name celebrity” to throw out the first pitch at the Atlantic League All-Star game on Wednesday night at Sovereign Bank Stadium.

In particular, the team wanted John Kuhn, the former Dover High School football standout and current Green Bay Packers fullback.

But with the National Football League being locked out, the Revs were having difficulties lining up Kuhn for the event.

“With the NFL lockout he’s not allowed to come,” the Revs official said at the time. “Any appearance he does is controlled by the Packers. We know his agent. We’re talking to his agent and we’ve been told that he is dying to come do this. It would be perfect. He’d be the perfect guy to throw out the first pitch.”

And now, it appears that Revolution officials have gotten their wish granted. A team official confirmed Tuesday night that the 6-foot, 250-pound Super Bowl XLV winner Kuhn is set to throw out the first pitch on Wednesday night.
