Did you know that each day at the Magic Kingdom a child is selected to throw out the first pitch at Casey’s Corner?
Casey’s Corner is a quick service restaurant at the end of Main Street with an all American baseball theme. The cast members swing open the doors at the restaurant’s opening and select a child to throw out the first pitch. A photopass photographer is present to capture the moment. Then the cast members sing, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”
During the opening ceremony each cast member dressed in their old time baseball uniforms is holding a bag of Cracker Jacks. These Cracker Jacks are then tossed out to guests watching the opening ceremonies. Disney has many special magical moments throughout the park each day for guests to uncover.
