Now pitching for Richardson: El Tiante

We all know Bill Richardson likes baseball. He tells us all the time. And his stint as a collegiate player (and major league hopeful) is chronicled in his memoir. This weekend, one baseball great will tell New Hampshire voters how much he likes Richardson. Former Red Sox pitcher Luis Tiant will stump for Richardson in Manchester on Sunday night. Tiant is among a handful of celebrities who have endorsed Richardson. Edward James Olmos and Lee Iaccoca have also put their star power behind his campaign.
