Olivia Pichardo has seen better days on the baseball field.
Brown University’s Olivia Pichardo, who became the first female to play in a Division I collegiate baseball game, was seen throwing out the first pitch at Fenway Park in Boston, but things did not work out in her favor.
Pichardo got an at-bat against Bryant University while Brown was down 10-1 in the bottom of the ninth. As soon as she stepped in the batter’s box, she made history.
The Red Sox wanted to shed more light on it by inviting her to throw out the first pitch for their game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Pichardo stepped on the mound and fired one toward home plate, but her accuracy was way off. She laughed it off as her friends, family, and the Boston crowd clapped and cheered.
Twitter account NESN posted the video, but did not allow anybody to comment on it as they turned it off. They also hid every single reply that got through.
Unfortunately for them, you cannot turn off quote comments and they were quite brutal.
Pichardo is considered a utility player for the Brown Bears. As a freshman, she’s waiting in the wings for her opportunity for more playing time as she only has the one at-bat under her belt. That moment for her came back in March.
Prior to entering the Ivy League campus, Pichardo was on the USA Baseball Women’s National Team last summer.
She also completed an internship with the New York Mets’ amateur scouting department in 2022.
She has plenty of time to create spectacular moments.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
