When you’re at a baseball game and you see a non-baseball athlete walking up to throw the first pitch, you assume the act will be routine. They have a body that’s capable of doing things mere regular humans can’t do, so therefore the simple act of throwing a baseball sort of accurately should be easy.
Too often, though, it isn’t. Just last week Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson planted his throw a few feet off the mound, despite much practice and anticipation. Skip to the two-minute mark below to see the carnage…
Thankfully, last night Chargers receiver Danario Alexander’s attempt at a Padres game didn’t end in similar crushing shame. We see it in the video evidence that also features Vincent Brown and his kid being a kid at a baseball game.
