The Astros hosted University of Houston night at Minute Maid Park on Tuesday, and famous UH alumnus Carl Lewis threw out the first pitch.

Lewis has won 10 Olympic medals, including nine gold, for long jumping and sprinting. He was also named "Sportsman of the Century" by the International Olympic Committee and "Olympian of the Century" by Sports Illustrated magazine.

And yes, his first pitch may have been a little high and a tad inside, but ... RESUME.
