Rumors spread early Thursday morning that Bill Buckner would be throwing out the first pitch for Game 2 of the World Series. That was quickly shot down by the Dan Patrick Show’s producer Paul Pabst. Buckner is currently in Idaho, which is a long way from Fenway Park.
The land of the potatoes is probably as close as most Red Sox fans want Buckner to Boston.
Just spoke to Bill Buckner. He told us he is not involved with the first pitch of game 2 of World Series. He’s in Idaho..not Boston.

If he were to show up one day, this would probably be the reaction…
