9NEWS first met Meyerhoff in intensive care at University Hospital last fall. He'd lost almost all movement from the shoulders down in a bike accident on his way to work at the hospital.
He spent two months at Craig Hospital, where he regained limited movement of his hands and some movement in his arms.
Sunday's accomplishment was a thrill for Meyerhoff, who played little league as a kid.
"To be able to get on a major league ball field and actually be able to throw a ball with a professional," Meyerhoff said. "That is not something everyone has the opportunity to do."
Ben's children, wife, friends and co-workers accompanied him to Coors Field Sunday.
It was Employee day for University of Colorado Health. The CEO, Bruce Schroffel was originally invited to throw in that first pitch. He handed the honor to Meyerhoff, saying Meyerhoff an inspiration to the entire hospital and the community.
