John Bledsoe works for an insurance company that partners with Stetson University. Before a recent Stetson – Florida State game, John got to throw out the first pitch. After jumping over the first base line, John took the mound like a confident veteran would. He then proceeded to throw the ball directly into the ground. It was awful. To John’s credit, he got up and seemed to own the situation. Good for him. Bad for his chances at making the corporate softball team. [h/t @DrewMagary]

Enjoy your moment, kid.
This will hopefully be a good thing.
