BOOOO: Paul Pierce Threw This Pitiful First Pitch At A Dodgers Game, Came Up Short By About 20-Feet
— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) July 29, 2015
You can’t take you good ol’ time with a wind up like that, then just short Dodger Stadium’s home plate by 20-feet, Paul Pierce! Wow.
For the life of me, I can’t understand how a guy whose job it is to fit a ball into a small, confined space, has trouble throwing out a first pitch and finding the catcher’s mitt.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I get that Paul Pierce plays basketball not baseball, but whatever. If you’re a professional athlete, you HAVE to be able to deliver better stuff than this. Straight up pitiful!
At least 50 Cent had some heat behind his throw (albeit 40 feet left of home plate)! Dude doesn’t play sports, but it would’ve at least made it across the dish if it were on target!
Paul Pierce, I’m sorry, but those boos were deserved, bro. If you get a shot a redemption, do what you do best and treat it like a half-court shot if you get a little nervous with the pebble in your palm. Drain it. Stick to what you know. Ball is life. Go Dodgers.
