Oklahoma Softball's Tiare Jennings to Throw Out First Pitch at Dodger Stadium Monday Night

Jennings follows in coach Patty Gasso's footsteps after she tossed out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium just less than two weeks ago.

A rising Oklahoma star is getting some shine on the big stage this week.

Oklahoma second baseman Tiare Jennings is going to throw out the ceremonial first pitch ahead of Monday night’s Los Angeles Dodgers vs Pittsburgh Pirates matchup at Dodgers Stadium, according to her mother on social media.

This will be the second Sooner softball first pitch for the Dodgers as head coach Patty Gasso did so less than two weeks ago on Aug. 16.

Jennings is a quickly ascending star in Oklahoma sports after her absurd freshman season in which she was named both the D1Softball and NFCA Freshman of the Year as she hit .462 with 27 home runs and 92 RBIs and was  a vital piece to Oklahoma's national title run in June. 

Her talent is obvious and with three more seasons ahead of her in the crimson and cream, it can be safely assumed she will find herself on a plethora of all-time lists when her career is said and done.

According to her mother’s tweet, Jennings is a life-long Dodgers fan so, similar to Gasso previously, it will be a dream realized to take the hill at one of the famous settings in sports to toss out the first pitch.

The LA Dodgers are set to host the Pirates at 9:10 p.m. CT on Monday night.
