Justise Winslow threw out the first pitch before Thursday night’s Braves-Marlins game because Floridians long ago turned their attention toward other sports.
The Miami Heat forward had the good fortune of corralling a Matt Kemp home run ball. After being egged on by the crowd, he threw it back onto the field of play with all the force of a lazy entry pass into the post.
But perhaps that’s smart. Blowing out a shoulder trying to go full Henry Rowengartner would be a bad look.
