Game 3 saw the iconic Randy Johnson and Louis Gonzales in the limelight, while Game 4 is scheduled to feature golf legend Jon Rahm. However, for Game 5, the honored guest has yet to be revealed.

This anticipation led former Cardinals Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner to take to social media, expressing his keen interest in throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.

Kurt Warner played the final five seasons of his career in Arizona.

During this time, he took the Cardinals to the Super Bowl in 2009 and the divisional round in 2010.

Warner claimed two MVP titles, participated in four Pro Bowls, won a Super Bowl with the Rams, and earned the prestigious Walter Payton Player of the Year award in 2008.

Undoubtedly one of the greatest athletes in Arizona sports history.
