Jason Collins, the former Celtics center who this spring became the first active player in major pro sports to announce that he is gay, will throw out the first pitch before Thursday’s game at Fenway Park between the Red Sox and Rangers.

Collins, who was traded from the C’s to the Wizards in February, is a free agent.
