Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - On Friday afternoon, the Rochester Red Wings will be hosting their home opener at Frontier Field.

A well-known Gates Police officer will be throwing out the first pitch at that game.

Officer Lance Duffy suffered a heart attack earlier this year after driving himself to the emergency room.

Public safety officers at Strong Memorial Hospital had to smash Duffy's window and perform CPR.

Duffy was in intensive care for several weeks and has been undergoing physical therapy. He was released from the hospital in February.
