Olympian Dawn Harper tosses a first pitch at the Cell

It's starting to become a trend for Olympic medalists to throw out the ceremonial first pitches at White Sox games.

A few weeks back, swimmer and Olympic gold medalist Conor Dwyer had the honor bestowed upon him, and now this week, hurdler and two-time medalist Dawn Harper donned a Sox uniform and threw out the first pitch.

While Harper might still be a Cardinals fan at the end of the day, she was really excited to test out her arm strength.
