Ryan MacLeod (RyanMacLeod15)Contributing WriterOn Monday, March 21st Meb Keflezighi became the first US marathoner to win the Boston Marathon since 1983. On Wednesday night he will enter Fenway Park to the cheers of all of Boston. Keflezighi, who is from San Diego ran the 26.2 mile course in a time of 2:08:37 and won the the race by 11 seconds over his closest competitor. While many were able to see the marathon, we will all see Meb throw out the first pitch tonight. We know that he is able to run 26.2 miles at a blistering pace, but will he be able to get the ball over the plate? Tune into ESPN tonight to find out, first pitch is scheduled for 7:10, so Meb will be resting his legs and using his arm around 7:00pm tonight.
