The Oakland Athletics have reached out to a fan who has said he has tested positive for coronavirus about throwing out the first pitch on Opening Day.

A 39-year-old fan named Justin tweeted a picture Monday of himself wearing an A's hat while in a hospital bed.

Club president Dave Kaval responded on social media early Tuesday morning, saying he "would be honored to have [Justin] throw out the first pitch opening day."

The post came to the attention of Kaval and the A's after they had already announced Monday that they were donating $100,000 to the Alameda County Community Food Bank to help during the coronavirus pandemic.
