Charles Barkley was one heck of a basketball player, but his talents on the court certainly did not transfer to the diamond.
Sir Charles threw out the first pitch before Tuesday’s Cubs-Reds game at Wrigley Field and his pitch was not one of the best we’ve seen. If a batter were in the box, the pitch probably would have hit him in the leg, not that it would have hurt at Chuck’s velocity.
Barkley later did an interview with FOX Sports and talked about the first pitch. He said he didn’t really play baseball growing up and said this was his first time throwing out a first pitch.
At least Chuck didn’t look completely “ridiculus” on his toss.
