Papa John delivers a first pitch

John Schnatter, better known as “Papa John,” started delivering pizza in 1983 before creating the Papa John’s chain. On Friday, John delivered the first pitch at Yankee Stadium prior to the Bombers' matchup with the Rays.

Schnatter was in New York to celebrate Papa John’s 4,000th store opening in the Long Island village of New Hyde Park, N.Y.
