Graham to kick mound

Posted: 7:10 p.m.

Shayne Graham goes from kicking off the start of a football game to throwing out the first pitch of a baseball game.

Graham, the NFL's most accurate active kicker, tries to fire a strike from the Great American Ball Park mound Friday night in a custom-made Reds No. 17 jersey when Cincinnati opens its annual interleague series against the Indians.

Hank Reed, Graham's marketing agent, said Graham plans to visit the Reds Community Corner to take photos and help raise money for the club's Community Fund during the first three innings. Then he'll be interviewed in the fifth inning during the game's telecast on Fox Sports Net Ohio.
