CHICAGO (WSCR) Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs will throw out the first pitch at Thursday night’s Chicago White Sox game. The game will feature a matchup between the White Sox and the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians.

Both the White Sox and Indians are having seasons no one expected. The White Sox are 17-25 and 10 games back of the Indians, who have the best record in baseball.

Briggs will throw out the first pitch while the future of the NFL remains a little cloudy.

On Monday, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the NFL and upheld the current lockout. Both sides are continuing their court-order mediation, so there is hope that a deal can be reached at the negotiating table, and not the in a court room.
