50 cent was legendarily bad. So were Mariah Carey, Carl Lewis, Dick Chaney. There have been some just horrific first pitches over the years.
Joakim Noah didn’t want to go down with those people, so when his first attempt at a first pitch at the White Sox game Thursday was not exactly a Clayton Kershaw worthy, Noah asked for a second chance. A mulligan. And he got it.
And the second one was a strike. Knuckleballers throw harder, but it was a strike.
He’s still going to get some crap in the locker room for that.
