Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt is set to throw out the first pitch at the World Series Game 3 despite a leg injury.

Watt is currently on the injured reserve list with a tibial plateau fracture he sustained in the Week 5 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Watt is a Houston icon not just for his talents on the field, but also his actions off of it. He raised over $30 million for Hurricane Harvey relief.

Game 3 will take place at Minute Maid Park on Friday at 7:20 p.m. The Astros and Dodgers are currently tied in the series 1-1.
