5th Grader Dodger Fan from the Bay Area Throws Out First Pitch

Posted: Updated:

Casey Johnstone, the Dodger fan who became a Youtube sensation with his 5th grade graduation speech threw out the first pitch Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.

Johnstone lives in the Bay area and he is the lone Dodger fan among his friends at school, so when he got the assignment to write about his best memory, he put a twist on it.  Johnstone told a story of how agonizing it can be to be a Dodger fan in Giants territory. 

Thousands and thousand of hits later,  the Dodgers brought Casey and his family down to Dodger Stadium to throw out the first pitch. 

Casey says it's a dream come true.  Because so many people watched his speech, he got paid by Youtube, and he donated the $120 to Brian Stow, the Giants fan who was beaten 2 years ago at Dodger stadium.
