Elle Macpherson, the model who has graced three SPORTS ILLUSTRATED covers, threw out a first ball in a few years ago. “I remember her,” says former A’s catcher Ron Hassey, now a coach for the Colorado Rockies. “How can you forget her? She didn’t know what to do after I caught it. I didn’t know if we were going to shake hands or if I was going to get a smack on the cheek.
