"Rudy," of Notre Dame fame, throws out first pitch Thursday

Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, the Notre Dame football walk-on immortalized in the 1993 film "Rudy," threw out the first pitch before Thursday afternoon's Orioles series finisher against Tampa Bay.

Ruettiger's nephew John Ruettiger is an outfielder in the Orioles' minor league system. He batted .280 and stole 28 bases at three stops this season.

The runt-sized Rudy Ruettiger recorded a sack on the final play of the final home game of his senior year in 1975.
