Butch Patrick, better known as Eddie Munster of 1960s TV hit "The Munsters," is in for a busy week in the Lehigh Valley.
Patrick will throw out the first pitch as the Iron Pigs start their 2013 season at Coca-Cola Park on Thursday night.
On Saturday, you can meet Patrick at the Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum in Allentown. He'll talk about his experiences as "the Celebrity Collector" gathering Beatles memorabilia, animation art and treasures from the Space Race.
Patrick will be featured as part of the museum's free History Expo from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors can learn why history matters. The expo drew 1,500 people last year.
The event will include:

Admission is free. Kids get a free hot dog and beverage.
