Powell, a native of Bedford, Ohio, played at Ohio State. Powell, his agent and Ohio State coordinated his first-pitch honors with the Indians, according to Zack Meisel of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The Browns apparently were unaware of Powell’s plans to throw out the first pitch.
Powell played in eight games with the Seahawks last season after signing with them as an undrafted free agent. He signed with his hometown team in February.
