Watch former LSU star Angel Reese throw first pitch at Chicago Cubs game

Angel Reese hasn’t been in the Windy City long, but she’s already adapting to the Chicago sports culture.

The former LSU women’s basketball star and seventh-overall pick in the 2024 WNBA draft is early in her rookie campaign with the Chicago Sky, but she and rookie teammate Kamilla Cardoso were chosen to throw the first pitch at a Chicago Cubs game on Tuesday night.

Formerly college rivals, Reese and Cardoso — a South Carolina product — are now on the same side after the Sky took Cardoso third overall in the same draft.

Two games into her rookie season, Reese is averaging 11.5 points and 8.5 rebounds to go with 1.5 assists and a steal.

Reese and the Sky return to the court on Thursday night for a game on the road against the New York Liberty.
