VIDEO: Shooting Victim, Hero Toss Ceremonial First Pitch

Daniel Borowy of Perry Hall High School and his guidance counselor, Jesse Wasmer, earned huge cheers at the playoff game at Oriole Park Sunday night.

Some of the biggest cheers at Oriole Park Sunday night came before the game even started. 

A sellout crowd stood as Perry Hall High student Daniel Borowy threw out the ceremonial first pitch with his guidance counselor, Jesse Wasmer. 

Six weeks ago, Borowy, 17, was seriously wounded when he was shot in the high school lunchroom, allegedly at the hands of a fellow student. Wasmer is credited with intervening and preventing further violence. Click here to see Patch's coverage of the Perry Hall High shooting.

Orioles fans were especially delighted to see the balls caught by Nick Markakis and Brian Roberts—two popular players who are unable play due to injury.
