John Wall redeems himself with decent first pitch

It’s a good time to be John Wall. He’s playing at the top of his game, has a new shoe deal with adidas, and even got the chance to redeem himself after throwing what may have been the worst first pitch ever in 2011. Check out the video above of Wall throwing the first pitch in last night’s Nationals/White Sox game.

That’s a far cry from this:

Something tells me he’s been practicing.

    I sure hope he has NOT been practicing. That was still pretty weak. With the new max contract extension he is going to sign this summer he can hire a pitching coach.

    Okay Tyler. Decided to say something to you. I think you are cool but you pissed me off this morning or last nite with the diss of cargo pants reference. Am I really a dork for wearing them? I like the extra pockets.

    It feels good to win a title without cheating. UK fans should hold their head in shame over not caring how many corners Cal and Wes cut along the way.

    4-you hired teagues hs coach to lure him to uofl.
    you hired a guy away from his nike rep job solely for recruiting
    and then magically had better recruits.

    Cargo shorts: OK. Cargo pants: see TT’s evaluation.
    Glad I played ball for a dozen years so at least when my time comes, should be able to pitch a strike..Got to go wait for the MLB to call….what’s another 45 years?

    4-Our coach doesn’t cheat. He doesn’t have an affair with someone in a restaurant either.

    He doesn’t kill babies neither. Nor does he work with the AD behind the scenes to force a 30-year head coach out so he can take over.

    11) Your coach may not cheat in his personal life, but his current wife had her legs up in the air back in the day. Cow and his wife worked at Kansas a long time ago. Cow’s wife was married to someone else at the time. In fact, he and Cow were friends and the man got Cow a job. Well, how did Cow reapy his supposed buddy? He thanked him by nailing his wife. The rest is history. They split up and Cow married this wholesome woman. There is still some debate as to who Erin Calipari’s real daddy is. That is why she used to go by the name Erin Cromwell-Calipari. Look it up.

    Pitching is so much harder than it looks. I had the strongest arm on the team in 7th grade and begged my coach to let me pitch. As punishment for my sins, he let me.

    2 outs and 9 runs later … I was glad to go back to 3rd base.
