PINEHURST, N.C. —- For those who missed it last week, Randy Edsall had a ceremonial first pitch last week in Baltimore.

The upshot of this, of course, is publicity. The downside, though, is the possibility of looking bad.


“I was in my back yard throwing some and I was throwing some heaters,” Edsall said. “[Brother Duke Edsall] gave me some grief. He said I threw it harder in the back yard to him than when I did when I got to the mound. I think you get out there on the mound and it’s something you haven’t done and the butterflies start to sink in a little bit. I just wanted to make sure I didn’t pull a John Wall.”

His effort can be accessed on the other side of this link, so go ahead and judge for yourself —- though Wall didn’t exactly leave a very high bar.
