Former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson threw out the first pitch at the Detroit Tigers-Toronto Blue Jays game Tuesday at Comerica Park, and it did not go well.
As you can see, Robinson was pitching from the front part of the mound, and his throw bounced well before it got to the plate. This coming from a quarterback, no less.
Robinson is trying to make the switch from QB to wide receiver in order to play in the NFL. He did not catch the ball too well at the Senior Bowl, but some team may be intrigued enough by his speed and skills to take him fairly high in the draft. There has also been some interest in him as a running back or cornerback.
The good news for Robinson is at least his first pitch wasn’t as bad as John Wall’s.
