Strong-as-hell swimming champion Katie Ledecky is from Washington D.C., and the Nationals invited her to come throw the first pitch tonight before their game against the Orioles. She arrived, as well she should, decked out in all five of her recently-acquired Olympic medals. Thankfully, Bryce Harper was kind enough to…
America hasn’t won a single World Baseball Classic, and we’re similarly lagging behind the rest of the world in first pitch nightmares. Where is the presidential candidate who will deliver creepy ghost children to America’s ballparks?
Snoop Dogg was at a Padres game for some reason this afternoon, and he threw out the first pitch, laying down the best highlight of the game in the process. His toss wasn’t as bad as 50 Cent’s notorious stray pitch from two years ago, but Snoop’s nearly took out a pair of innocent onlookers.
All sorts of people throw out first pitches before baseball games. Old guys, dinosaurs, washed rappers—you name it, they’ve done it. But this week, Nippon Professional Baseball—ever the innovators—went and put every quirky MLB first pitch into the toilet with this bizarre, unsettling play-within-a-play first pitch…
World War II veteran Burke Waldron tossed the first pitch for the Seattle Mariners for Monday’s Memorial Day game. Hitters beware: this guy has a mean breaking ball.
Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams threw out the first pitch at Thursday’s Brewers game, and it was accurate, provided that Carter-Williams was trying to hit the cameraman.
So, here's the question: how much worse can these first pitches get? At some point someone is going to do something you never dreamed possible of a ceremonial first pitch, like strike oil, or completely forget to release the ball and fling themselves toward home plate. Either that, or they're just going to have to…
Replicating this to any degree of exactitude could actually be a contestant's talent routine in a beauty pageant. Miss Texas Monique Evans's form, a horse mascot, and most importantly, the perfect watching-a-car-drive-by reaction, all make this an incredibly rare and difficult feat.
The Boston Red Sox held a 10th-anniversary reunion for players from the 2004 championship team before tonight's game. New Iowa Cubs player-coach Manny Ramirez tossed out the first pitch, until Johnny Damon came out of nowhere to snag it for justice, ten years later.
We thought we were done with 50 Cent's shitty first pitch, but we found another way to appreciate it. Enjoy these three photos that tell the tale of Fitty's pitch without actually showing the pitch. Think of it as a short play.
50 Cent threw out the first pitch at Citi Field tonight, so let's all watch as one of the most successful rappers ever fails to throw a baseball anywhere near home plate.
Tara the tabby, who saved her human from an attacking dog, threw out the first pitch at last night's Bakersfield Blaze game. As you might expect, since cats care nothing for pageantry and have useless muppet paws instead of hands, it was one of the worst first pitches in recorded history. #SticktoHeroics.
Tara, the cat that saved a boy attacked by a dog earlier this week in California, will throw out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game, because the law of the world dictates that minor league baseball must find a way to capitalize on any news story, regardless of magnitude.
