Idaho's 'Triathlon Brothers' throw out first pitch at Mariners game

SEATTLE, Wash. (KMVT/KSVT) — Noah and Lucas Aldrich of Eagle, the boys known as the "Triathlon Brothers," threw out the first pitch at the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees game Sunday.

You might ask, why the title?

11-year-old Noah tows, pedals and pushes his little brother in triathlon as Lucas suffers from a rare neurological condition.

Doctors gave him a 50 percent chance to live to 10; he's nine and a half and living ever day to the fullest.

They've competed in 15 triathlons since 2014, have been on the "Today Show" and most recently HBO's "Real Sports."

Mariners' Director of Marketing Gregg Greene saw this segment and invited the family to come.

The Aldrich family says it was an opportunity of a lifetime.
