Tim McGraw has sold more than 40 million records worldwide, but he’s still just a kid who’s dad was a professional baseball player at heart. Before game 4 of the World Series between the Kansas City Royals and his dad’s team, the New York Mets, Tim threw out the ceremonial first pitch.
Tug McGraw is a member of the Mets Hall of Fame and was one of the best closers in the National League in the early 1970s. He had a career year in 1972, with an 8-6 record and a 1.70 ERA and earned his first All-Star selection.

In 2003, Tug was diagnosed with a brain tumor before passing away in 2004. The same year, Tim released “Live Like You Were Dying” in memory of his father.
The Kansas City Royals beat the New York Mets in five games to clinch their first World Series title in 30 years.
