Steve Francis is not a great pitcher

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We’re reaching that time of year when basketball players start to pop up at baseball games to throw out ceremonial first pitches, which can have a variety of results. Last year we took an in-depth look at all these throws, and we will probably do that later this summer, but we need to take a second and check out this effort from former Rockets great Steve Francis. We know former Rockets forward Tracy McGrady can really pitch the ball, and although McGrady and Francis were traded for each other in the NBA, when you consider the first pitch Francis delivered at last night’s Houston Astros game, a Francis/McGrady baseball swap probably wouldn’t make much sense.
