CINCINNATI - Vice President Dick Cheney will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the season-opener for the Cincinnati Reds on Monday.

Former President George Bush threw the ceremonial first pitch at the opening game last year, the first to be played at Great American Ball Park.

The game between the Reds and the Chicago Cubs is scheduled to start at 2:15 p.m., with Cheney throwing his pitch a few minutes before that.
