Bill Nye throws out first pitch at Safeco Field

If you were like me as a kid 15-20 years ago, you grew up watching Bill Nye the Science Guy on PBS. Today, Nye is still spreading scientific knowledge across the country and reminding people in their late 20s and early 30s of great memories from their childhood watching his sometimes corny TV show.

On Friday night at Safeco Field, Nye (who began his career in Seattle) threw out the first pitch before the Angels-Mariners game, managing to get the ball to the plate from the rubber. But there's so much to love above this first pitch, from the super generic saxophone music that caused Nye to do a little jig while walking to the mound, to SCIENCE GUY on the back of his jersey, to his trademark bow tie on the outside of the jersey.

Bill Nye: inspiring scientific knowledge since 1955.
