Cierra Dillard threw the first pitch at the Rochester Red Wings game on Saturday.

Dillard was selected 20th by the Minnesota Lynx in this year’s WNBA draft.  She is a Gates Chili High School graduate and senior at the University at Buffalo.

Dillard says being at frontier field today was very refreshing.

“I actually worked in the parking lot handing out tickets for the VIPs and the regular parking spots,” said Dillard.  “And now when I pulled up, I’m getting congratulated. [I’m] going into the VIP and my name is actually on the list.”

Dillard was named MVP of the MAC tournament in March.
