Well… There is an age old tradition of throwing the first pitch out at a baseball game. We even saw Eytan Shander get that honor this year at a local High School. But there is no bigger stage than throwing out the pitch at a Major League ballpark.
It is a great honor… But it is kind of a no win situation. People really only remember the awful pitches (there have been many) and never really remember any of the good ones. In fact I can’t remember one that stands out that went right down the middle.
It’s like looking at a car accident. Humans just can’t look away, and can’t forget. Unless it is your family member I am guessing that over half the crowd is rooting for a horrible pitch each game.
We have seen some really horrible ones on the past.
5 years ago today, 50 Cent threw a bad first pitch.
Like, real bad.https://t.co/bcdW8k44tl pic.twitter.com/zNtSslvAXt

American Ninja my ass.
A newer one from this action star. First Bruce you aren’t even on the mound. Come on man. BOOce Willis!!
But last night what we saw in Chicago is immediately rocketing to the top. Not only did it take a HARD left turn not even close to the plate. But she just about killed a guy… A CAMERA GUY!
That is one of the best things I have seen in a long time!
Keep on “pitching“
