Bubba Watson to throw out first pitch at Yankees game on Tuesday


We've all seen Bubba Golf. On Tuesday night, the Bronx will get to experience Bubba Ball.

Bubba Watson will throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium as the hometown Yankees take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in some interleague action.

Watson is the 2010 Travelers Championship winner and represents the tournament in appearances.

Last season, Watson threw out the first pitch during the week of the Hartford, Conn.-area tournament in Flushing Meadows at Citi Field as the New York Mets let the 2012 Masters champion take the bump ceremonially.

A month prior, in May 2012, Watson threw out the first pitch for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, near his hometown of Bagdad, Fla.
