Garnett, Mozgov throw out first pitches

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We’ve reached the part of the calendar where basketball and baseball overlap, and as we’ve seen in years past, NBA players are always popular choices to throw out the first pitch at baseball games. This happens with more regularity during the NBA offseason, when players have more free time, but we’ve already had a few NBA first pitches this season.

Let’s start in Minnesota, where Kevin Garnett has returned. KG recently visited a Twins game and threw a looping first pitch strike…

And we should also go to Cleveland, where Timofey Mozgov walked across the street from the Cavs arena to the Indians’ stadium and threw out the first pitch at a recent game. Pretty good throw from Mozgov, considering his first practice pitch almost beans some dude hanging out in the batting cage…
