NBA’s Michael-Carter Williams Throws Out First Pitch, Hits Cameraman (Video)
Few things are better than a truly terrible first pitch. But it can get better. For instance, if the person throwing the pitch is elderly, or a woman, it’s not as funny. If it’s 50 Cent, it’s hilarious. If it’s an athlete, it’s funny, but also a little sad. However, that sadness turns to sheer exhilaration if the athlete in question pegs another human being with his errant pitch.
That is exactly what happened when Milwaukee Bucks guard Michael-Carter Williams tossed out the first pitch at a Brewers game. Take a look:

I don’t know how much those cameras are, but I’m guessing a new lens isn’t cheap. And to his credit, he hit the camera right in the middle. I wish we had footage from that angle, but for all I know, that camera is toast.
