Murray throws, Soderstrom hits first pitch at Diamondbacks game

Jun 25, 2019, 7:42 PM

Two different approaches for two different athletes.

The Arizona Cardinals’ Kyler Murray threw out the first pitch at the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Tuesday night affair against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

He was joined by Arizona Coyotes first-round pick Victor Soderstrom, who instead used his stick to deliver the ball.

Murray’s rookie teammates were all out to support Murray and attend the game.

“My first time out here, being in Arizona now — obviously now I’m a fan of the Arizona Diamondbacks,” Murray told Fox Sports Arizona.

The Cardinals’ No. 1 overall pick will begin training camp a month from his first pitch on July 25, running through all the way to August 17. Sandwiched between those dates are two preseason games and the annual Red & White Practice that takes place on August 3.

As for Soderstrom, the Coyotes’ prospect development camp got underway right after the draft. The Coyotes traded up for Soderstrom, moving up from 14th to No. 11 to select the player general manager John Chayka had ranked third overall.
