I love baseball, and just one of the reasons is for its many long held traditions. One of those traditions is having some different citizen/fan/celebrity, etc. throw out "the first pitch", before the game starts.
I've seen many funny things happen during that first pitch ceremony, but what happened last night [Wed.-Aug. 16, 2017] in Fenway Park in Boston in a game between the Red Sox and Cardinals tops them all. I am certainly not making fun of the fan of the Red Sox who threw out the first pitch, Jordan Leandre, who is a 17 year old courageous cancer survivor, just at the results of the pitch, just a little bit outside.
Thanks to John Berman who I first heard say this,
This First Pitch Gives New Definition To "Throwing Junk":
Jordan, I don't care if you can pitch or not, you are still a hero of mine for what you went through surviving cancer as a young child. Bless You!
