Arizona Cardinals: David Johnson will keep day job
Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson threw the ceremonial first pitch for the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday night
If you ever thought that Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson was so good an athlete he could play baseball as well, you might want to think again. His ceremonial first pitch at the Arizona Diamondbacks game on Thursday did not go so well.
Now, being a running back, you probably wouldn’t expect much from the guy throwing the baseball. However being the athlete he is you’d probably bet good money that he would at least make sure the ball was able to reach the catcher.
Again, after what we witnessed on Thursday at Chase Field, you’d be wrong again. The pitch rivaled 50 Cent’s ceremonial first pitch three years ago for the New York Mets at Citifield.
Needless to say this will not go in a personal highlight reel for the Cardinals back. It may however end up in a blooper reel. This is one of those things friends can bring up from time to time and razz him.
It was all in good fun though. Johnson laughed it off but it didn’t stop fans from voicing their opinions about the event.
Sticking to football is probably the best advice one can give Johnson. Throwing the ceremonial first pitch wasn’t all Johnson did with the Diamondbacks though.
Before the game, Johnson took some batting practice with the team. That reportedly didn’t go very well either, making it a rather ho-hum visit.
Still it was fun to see Johnson out there. We’re just glad he didn’t injure himself.
