On Sunday afternoon, August 31, 2014, undefeated Top Rank pro boxer, Mike "Yes Indeed" Reed, (Washington, D.C./Waldorf, MD/140 lbs/pro record: 10-0, 6 KOs) threw out the first pitch for the Bowie Baysox at Prince George's Stadium, in Bowie, Maryland. In their last weekend game of the season, the Baysox scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to rally from two runs down in an 8-7 win over the Altoona Curve. The Baysox are the AA affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles in the Eastern League.
Mike Reed said, "Thank you to the Baysox for inviting me to throw the ceremonial first pitch, and for helping promote my upcoming fight on October 4 in Atlantic City. It was a great experience, and it was great meeting the players, staff, and all the fans at the game. I'm looking forward to returning next season. I am also happy to say that my pitch was thrown accurately, and over the plate!"
Reed returns to the ring on Saturday, October 4, 2014, at Bally's in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in a six-round bout. His opponent has not been officially named yet. Tickets ($75, $50) promoted by Top Rank, are on sale now by phone (800) 736-1420 or online at ticketmaster.com
