PALM SPRINGS - The Coachella Valley's own hometown hero, Timothy 'Desert Storm' Bradley will be honored Friday by the Palm Springs Power baseball team.

Bradley is fresh off his June 9th win over Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas. Bradley is now a World Boxing Organization welterweight and light welterweight champion. To mark Bradley's big win, the Palm Springs Power has invited him to throw out the first pitch Friday night.

Proceeds from all ticket sales will be donated to the 'Turnaround Student of the Year Scholarship Fund' at Nellie Coffman Middle School.

Gates open at 6 p.m. Friday night, with Bradly throwing the first pitch at 6:55. The game against San Luis Obispo offically begins at 7:05 at Palm Springs Stadium.
