Antron Brown was a fish out of water in St. Louis on Tuesday night.

Brown, the pilot of the Matco Tools/U.S. Army Top Fuel dragster, was at Busch Stadium, the home of the St. Louis Cardinals. He threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cardinals game.

Brown joins Robert Hight and Bob Tasca III to throw out first pitches at Major League Baseball games this year. Hight and Tasca II each threw out the first pitch on the same night at a Boston Red Sox game, leading up to the NHRA New England Nationals in Epping, New Hampshire.

The game would just happen to be the longest of the night. The game went 14 innings, as the Cardinals would win 4-3 over the Pirates.

Now, Brown will travel to Brainerd, Minnesota, where he will be competing this weekend at Brainerd International Raceway for the 32nd annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals. He came in second place last year at the track, as Morgan Lucas would win the Top Fuel category.

He does have one career win at the track, as he won in 2011. Since joining Top Fuel in 2008, that is his only win at Brainerd.
