Tom Brady’s First Pitch at Fenway Opener Was In The Dirt (Video)
Tom Brady has made a name for himself as one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time, but football wasn’t the only sport he showed promise in at a young age. During his high school days, the three-time Super Bowl MVP was also a pretty good baseball player. While playing catcher at Junípero Serra High School, he impressed the Montreal Expos enough to get them to draft him in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB Draft.
Considering that, along with the fact that he has one of the strongest throwing arms in the NFL, you’d think the dude would be able to reach the plate while pitching from a mound, right? Not quite.
Just take a look at Tom Brady’s first pitch from the Red Sox’s home opener at Fenway earlier today:
