Yet Another Challenger Emerges For Worst First Pitch Ever

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.

Adeiny Hechavarria Momentarily Saves Game With Great Diving Grab

The Rockies beat the Marlins 5-4 on a walk-off single in the 13th inning Saturday and the only reason it wasn't an inning earlier is because of this play.

Red Sox Fan Dives Across His Row For Foul Ball, Doesn't Get It

This Red Sox fan just straight-up dove across half the people in his row trying to get a foul ball like he was a member of the secret service trying to take a bullet for the President.

Jeremy Maclin Appears To Injure Leg, Comes Right Back In

Jeremy Maclin, who missed all of last season after blowing out his ACL, went down with a non-contact injury early in the second quarter against Pittsburgh tonight.

Guy Spills Beer Everywhere Trying For Foul Ball; TV Guys Buy Him New One

Bob Costas Threw Two First Pitches Because The First One Was So Bad

Bob Costas threw the ceremonial first pitch(es) in St. Louis tonight and missed badly on his first toss. After fist-exploding with the Cardinals mascot, he cooly jogged to the rubber for his pitch.
