If you happen to be attending the San Francisco Giants June 12th match-up against the Houston Astros at AT&T Park, you might get a chance to see PGA golfer Rory McIlroy as the Giants invited him to attend the game in honor of Irish Heritage month.

McIlroy who was born in Northern Ireland (Holywood to be exact) will be on hand to throw out the first pitch of the game and for those who buy a special ticket package, a pre-game Irish party in Seals Plaza from 5pm-7pm could turn into a night that you might never forget.

If you don’t get a chance to actually meet the number one ranked golfer in the world, you have the possibility of taking home a bobblehead-version of golfer decked out in Giants gear which can be seen in this promotional advertisement:

    Obviously, this was written before Rory lost his #1 ranking. Now he can’t seem to even make the cut.
