NEW YORK -- Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is coming off the bench -- and heading to the mound at Yankee Stadium.
As a U.S. District Judge in 1995, Sotomayor issued an injunction that led baseball players to end their strike after 7½ months.
Sotomayor will throw out the pitch as part of Hispanic Heritage Month. Panama President Ricardo Martinelli is to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Friday's series opener.
