Everyone deserves a second chance, and that’s exactly what the Washington Nationals gave Wizards guard John Wall on Thursday night.
In 2011, Wall threw out one of the worst ceremonial first pitches of all time. This time, Wall got a shot at redemption.
After Wall was reminded of his failure by the Nationals’ mascot, the Wizards point guard took the hill and lofted a pitch that found its way all the way to the glove. Earlier in the day, Wall had practiced the toss with teammates A.J. Price, Bradley Beal and Kevin Seraphin to avoid a repeat performance.
“I’m just going to lob it,” Wall told CSNWashington earlier in the day. “Simple.”
