Nick Young Threw the First Pitch at a Dodgers Game. It Went Poorly.

Thursday April 24th, 2014

Swaggy P stopped by the Los Angeles Dodgers game last night to throw out the first pitch, and it did not go well.

It never stops being shocking when a professional athlete can't toss a ball 60 and a half feet relatively on target, but it is important to take into account that while this is a terrible way to throw a pitch, it's a great way to throw a half-court buzzer-beater. Maybe Nick Young was attempting to throw a 90 mile an hour slider, because that's just how he lives his life.

Even being coached by Cy Young winner Orel Hershiser couldn't rein in Young's wild arm.

Things did go slightly better for Young when he and teammate Jordan Farmar hit the batting cages. Maybe Young is more of a centerfield prospect?
