ATLANTA (AP) — Retirement is getting off to an exciting start for Georgia’s top judge.

Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice P. Harris Hines is set to throw out the first pitch for the Atlanta Braves on Saturday when they face the Pittsburgh Pirates. In a statement released by the court, Hines called the opportunity “the thrill of a lifetime.”

Game time starts at 7:10 p.m.

Friday was Hines’ last day on the state’s highest court, where he has served for more than two decades.

Justice Harold Melton is set to be sworn in as the next chief justice on Tuesday.
