JOHN WILLIAMS CEREMONIAL FIRST PITCH 
John Williams, one of the most accomplished composers in American history and a lifelong baseball fan, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to tonight's game, as the Orioles celebrate his illustrious five-decade career in the performing arts. For more than 50 years, Williams has composed scores and served as music director for many of Hollywood's most critically-acclaimed and top-grossing films, including E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, several Harry Potter films, the Indiana Jones series, Jaws, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, the Star Wars films, and many more. He has received five Academy Awards and 51 Oscar nominations, making him the Academy's most-nominated living person and the second-most nominated person in the history of the Oscars. Williams has also won 24 Grammy Awards, three Emmy Awards, and four Golden Globe Awards. 

B.A.T. BOBBY MURCER AWARD CEREMONY
In a pregame ceremony, the Orioles will be presented with the Bobby Murcer Award from The Baseball Assistance Team (B.A.T.) for their generous support of B.A.T., a nonprofit organization supported by Major League Baseball that confidentially helps members of the baseball family in need of assistance with nowhere else to turn. Named after Bobby Murcer, member of the B.A.T. Board of Directors who lost his battle with cancer at the age of 62, and in tribute to his legacy of a lifetime of compassion, the award recognizes teams in each league who match his generous spirit. Murcer's widow, KAY MURCER, his grandson KNOX WEATHERSPOON, and Executive Director of B.A.T. ERIK NILSEN, will present the award to B.A.T board members and representatives from the Orioles including MASN broadcaster GARY THORNE and Orioles player ADAM JONES.
