JJ Watt to throw out first pitch at World Series Game 3

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- 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.
