Friday was going to be an exciting night for Tyvis Powell.
Powell, who was signed by the Cleveland Browns on Feb. 9, was scheduled to throw the first pitch before the Cleveland Indians’ game against the Chicago White Sox.
This honor probably was especially cool for Powell, considering he’s an Ohio native and an Ohio State product.
But mere hours before he would take the mound at Progressive Field, the Browns opted to release the second-year safety.
While there might have been some awkwardness in the air, Powell still took the mound and tossed the ceremonial first pitch.
Just a bit outside.
