Keegan Bradley is finding out there are some great perks to being PGA champ. Earlier this week, the Hopkinton High grad, who’s in town to play in the Deutsche Bank Championship, threw out the first pitch at Fenway Park. Then he took the field before the Pats/Giants game at Gillette Stadium, joining Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo for the coin toss. . . . While Bradley was at the Pats game, Phil Mickelson was at Fenway, where he took a few cuts during BP and threw out the first pitch. . . . Last night, Deutsche Bank Americas CEO Seth Waugh was slated to throw out the first pitch. . . . Yanks closer Mariano Rivera could not have been nicer when he and his wife had lunch at 29 Newbury St. The first-ballot Hall of Famer enjoyed the seafood pasta and afterward asked for the chef’s phone number so he can call ahead the next time he’s in town.
