Listen to Metallica on iHeartRadio

It may be the middle of football season, but Metallica is ready for some baseball. 

The metal vets have announced plans to join their hometown San Francisco Giants in the spring for another "Metallica Night." 

Like last year's event, Metallica will kick off the Giants' game against the Miami Marlins by performing the National Anthem and throwing out the first pitch.  They also plan to stick around for the rest of the evening, promising fans "all kinds of Metalli-fun and games." 

Special event tickets for the May 16th game go on sale next Friday, November 29th, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Little Kids Rock Bay Area Chapter.
