ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — I noted the other day that there have been a ton of NBA-related first pitches thrown at Major League Baseball games this summer and fall. And while I’m still planning on a massive post rounding up all these pitches, I wanted to wait as late as I could so I wouldn’t miss any of these first pitches.
And then Sir Charles comes along and forces my hand. Last night in Chicago, Charles Barkley threw out the first pitch at a Cubs game. And, first of all, it was juuu-ust a bit outside. OK, I’m being generous: It was way wide right and it bounced all the way to the backstop. But, hey, it was better than his golf swing?
