Heroic counselor, student throw Game 1 first pitches
BALTIMORE -- Perry Hall High School guidance counselor Jesse Wasmer and student Daniel Borowy threw out the ceremonial first pitches before Sunday night's Game 1 of the American League Division Series between the Orioles and Yankees at Camden Yards.

Wasmer played a heroic role in a shooting that occurred in the Baltimore school's cafeteria on Aug. 27.

After Borowy was shot in the back, Wasmer responded quickly by tackling the gunman to prevent any further violence.
