Dawn Harper hurdles into the Cell

Two-time Olympian Dawn Harper threw out the first pitch at U.S. Cellular Field on Monday night.

The Illinois native, who won gold in Beijing and silver in London in the 100-meter hurdles, was trying to help the White Sox prevent the Tigers from doing some hurdling of their own. The two teams opened a four-game series with the ChiSox owning first place by a margin of two games.
