The Boston Red Sox are coming to Globe Life Park on Thursday, and so is LaDainian Tomlinson.

The Pro Football and College Football Hall of Famer will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at TCU Night as the Horned Frogs take their turn as part of the Texas Rangers' annual college night promotion.

Tomlinson played at TCU from 1997 to 2000 and blossomed into a star in his final two seasons. He gained 1,974 yards as a junior, including a NCAA single-game record 406 vs. Texas-El Paso, and then 2,158 as a senior.

Tomlinson lives in Westlake and was recently named to the TCU board of trustees.
