An East Bay family will throw out the first pitch this Saturday at the Oakland Athletics game to honor a loved one they lost.

ABC7 News first told you about Diego Garcia and his family's social media campaign back in Feb.

Their "First Pitch for Diego" campaign honors their late brother.

The avid A's fan was jogging in Pinole in Feb. when he was hit and killed by a drunk driver.

Diego was such a fan that his family buried him wearing an Athletics jersey.

His brother Marcos, three sisters, and parents will be part of the ceremonial first pitch Saturday.
