If you missed it, it was bad. Dr. Fauci threw out the first pitch for the opening MLB game of the year between the Washington Nationals and the New York Yankees. It made it halfway maybe… and a little sideways. It was one of the worst we’ve seen. I get it though, he’s old, but the excuses are rolling in now.
“I completely destroyed my arm,” the 79-year-old told Ben Cohen of The Wall Street Journal. “My arm was hanging down around my shoes.
“Instead of doing my normal motion of just lobbing the ball, which would’ve been the best thing to do, I thought, ‘Oh, baby, I better put a lot of different oomph into it,'” Fauci continued. “And I did. And you saw what happened.”
What followed was a pitch that didn’t just miss the strike zone but headed toward the dugout.
