Although the Guardians ultimately beat the White sox with a score of 4-2, having the Ghost frontman Papa IV, whose real name is Tobias Forge, lobbing the ceremonial toss appears as double publicity for the band as well as the White Sox.
According to Metal Injection, Ghost has had a lot of success lately after their 2019 single “Mary on a Cross” went viral on TikTok and landed at number 90 on the Billboard Hot 100.
