For Pete's Sake

In his defense, Josh Jackson probably hasn’t played a lot of baseball.

However, this was about as a bad a first pitch as you’ll see. Not 50 Cent bad, but bad.

Jackson, who was drafted Thursday night as the No. 4 overall pick by the Phoenix Suns, was at Friday night’s Arizona Diamondbacks game. He threw out the first pitch along with Haason Reddick, who was a first-round pick by the Arizona Cardinals in the NFL Draft.

The pitch from Jackson was not good. Here is the video from the Diamondbacks:

Jackson’s new team had some fun at his expense, tweeting “Soooo maybe Josh won't be in the pitching rotation anytime soon”
