BALTIMORE, Md. — Elder Dale G. Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints threw the ceremonial first pitch Monday night at the Baltimore Orioles game.
Officials say the throw at Camden Yards was part of Latter-day Saints Night, which is an annual event sponsored by the Church’s Baltimore Stake.
After his pitch, Elder Renlund — who was joined by his wife, Sister Ruth Renlund — stayed to enjoy the rest of the game.
According to Church officials, Elder Renlund served as a bishop for a congregation in the Baltimore area during his medical residency in the 1980s at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. During that time, his wife also earned a law degree from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.
