Fallen Officer’s Daughter Throws First Pitch at Rangers Game
An emotional night at Globe Life Park Saturday night, for the family of a slain police officer.
Emily Sherrard walked out to the pitcher’s mound before The Texas Rangers played the Seattle Mariners. She wasn’t alone. On law enforcement appreciation night at the ballpark, Emily was there to throw out the first pitch before the game. She threw it right down the middle.
Her father, David Sherrard, was a Richardson police officer. In February, he was killed in the line of duty – the first Richardson police officer to be killed on the job in the department’s 63 year history.
Officer Sherrard’s police partner, Victor Diaz, accompanied Emily to the mound for that emotional moment, which drew a standing ovation from the crowd.
