NBA Champion JaVale McGee NAILS Ceremonial First Pitch at A’s Game (Videos)
JaVale McGee is having quite a good June. Not only did he score his first championship ring with the Warriors, but now he’s popping up in Oakland, sending a first pitch right down the middle of the strike zone at last night’s A’s game.
So many great athletes flounder when it’s time to fire a pitch, but McGee managed to not only avoid embarrassment, but he actually looked pretty darn competent.
Lots of cameras were around to capture it:

A’s pitching coach Mike Aldrete called the pitch a strike, and who are we to argue with a pro?
