The New England Patriots were a part of the opening day festivities for the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Flanked by Patriots owner Robert Kraft, team president Jonathan Kraft, Bill Belichick and their four Vince Lombardi trophies, Tom Brady threw out the first pitch prior to Boston’s home opener against the Washington Nationals.
Unfortunately for TB12, he unleashed one of the poorest first pitches in recent memory. David Ortiz, another Boston sports legend, saved the day by scooping the ball out of the dirt before it got away.
Granted, it’s not in the stratosphere of 50 Cent/Mariah Carey but considering Brady was a high school baseball player at one point, it’s rather surprising.
Perhaps more important than Brady’s errant first pitch was his choice of t-shirts. Brady trotted out sporting a shirt with the number 5 on it – in all likelihood a reference to potentially winning a fifth Super Bowl ring.
Despite Darrelle Revis setting Instagram ablaze on Sunday over his contributions to New England’s fourth ring, Brady and Belichick are getting primed to defend their title.
