It's not every day in life you get second chances. Or second first-pitches, but Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah was given that opportunity at the Chicago White Sox game against the Oakland A's on Thursday.

It's not every day in life you get second chances. Or second first-pitches. Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah was given that opportunity Thursday after throwing out a horrendous (first) first-pitch at the hometown White Sox game.

Noah's original first pitch, thrown ahead of the White Sox's 1-0 win over the Oakland Athletics on Thursday, didn't reach the plate, but when given another chance, he didn't waste the opportunity. He threw a rainbow over the heart of the plate.

Here's a GIF of the sequence from MLB.com:
