Cleveland Museum of Art Director David Franklin throws a changeup at Progressive Field

Fear of failure in a major league ballpark definitely concentrates the mind. "You block out everything around you. I was very focused," said Cleveland Museum of Art Director and lefty David Franklin, who threw out a ceremonial first pitch Saturday at Progressive Field before the Cleveland Indians played the Toronto Blue Jays. A former Little League pitcher who played baseball in Toronto from age 6 or 7 until high school, Franklin drew on his prior experience. "I had a bit of a career," he said. "I was all junk. I couldn't throw a fastball, so I learned odd pitches."
