According to Matt Moreno of DodgerBlue.com, Ingram will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before Wednesday night’s game against the San Francisco Giants: Brandon Ingram, Los Angeles Lakers rookie and No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Lakers head coach Luke Walton and former Lakers forward Metta World Peace previously had the honor of doing so this season.
Clippers guard J.J. Redick threw out the first pitch to Mike Trout at the Angels game on Saturday. Redick told Fox Sports that he was going to “throw a dart,” and he did … sort of. The thing is that the pitch bounced, but it wasn’t like a Paul Pierce first pitch bounce, it was more like a laser beam. The Fox Sports crew commented on how that was a pretty close call, but Trout was able to prevent anything terrible from happening, so it was fine.
