Jim Thome throws out horrible first pitch (Video)

Jim-Thome-first-pitchJim Thome is less than two years removed from being on an MLB roster. The legendary slugger spent most of the later years of his career as a designated hitter, but you would think throwing a baseball would be second nature for him. That did not appear to be the case when he threw out the first pitch for the Triple-A Charlotte Knights on Friday.

Thome’s pitch was so bad that the camera set up behind home plate lost sight of it. The ball sailed juuuuuust a bit outside, to say the least. Considering he is seventh on the all-time home run list with 612 long balls, we know Thome’s best work always came from the plate. Perhaps the Knights should have made an exception and had a “first hit” ceremony rather than a first pitch.

Between Thome and Nolan Ryan, we have seen some horrible first pitches already this season from MLB icons. These guys need to take some pointers from Ice Cube.
