Who Should Throw Out The First Pitch At Citi Field?

'Cause it's not gonna be Count Vikula, we'll tell you that much!

In normal times, a company with its name on a baseball stadium would be flattered to have the chief executive take part in the opening-day festivities.
But these are not normal times. So do not expect Vikram S. Pandit, Citigroup's chief executive, to throw out the first pitch at Citi Field when the Mets play their first regular-season game there April 13.

Okay, but will he at least be enjoying himself a Shroom Burger in the stands? NO!

In fact, the company said Pandit and many of his top lieutenants would not be in the park.
