TooTallCard.jpgAfter visits this week by Adam Sandler’s Lunch Lady on Tuesday and professional golfer Caroline Larsson on Wednesday, former Cowboys defensive end Ed “Too Tall” Jones will stop by the ballpark on Thursday.

Jones, a two-time All-Pro, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to Thursday’s game.  All fans in attendance on Thursday will be able to register for a free raffle drawing to win a football autographed by Jones.
Jones is in town to participate in the Boxing Hall of Fame’s induction weekend and is being brought to Alliance Bank Stadium thanks to Champions 4 Champions and Spadora on Sports.  Too Tall took a year off from playing for the Cowboys to try his hands as a professional boxer in 1979.  He won all of his professional bouts, but went back to the football field the following year.
