Denard Robinson apologizes for horrible first pitch, makes fun of himself for it
Denard Robinson threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Detroit Tigers game at Comerica Park on Tuesday, and it was pretty embarrassing. For those who missed it, we have the hilarious video here.
We thought it was horrible that a college quarterback was unable to come close to reaching the plate, let alone someone who played baseball in high school. On Wednesday, Robinson took to Twitter to poke fun at himself for the horrible showing. He also apologized to his friends from high school that he played baseball with.
To all my high school friends that I played baseball with at DBHS I’m sorry for not showing my skills yesterday. Lol

That’s right, Robinson was a center fielder at Deerfield Beach High School in Florida. Apparently he has completely forgotten how to throw a baseball. Either that, or he had the worst case of arm cramping before an opening pitch in opening pitch history.
While it probably wasn’t the worst first pitch we have ever seen, it certainly doesn’t help Robinson’s case that he played baseball about five years ago.
