Golden State Warriors big man Draymond Green was asked to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game 4 of the National League Division Series at AT&T Park on Tuesday, and he failed miserably.
Green took the time to get warmed up before taking the mound, and seemed to have a decent throwing motion.

Unfortunately, the execution wasn’t there. Green walked out to the mound, and threw a pitch that bounced in the dirt. On top of that, it sailed way outside.

That looked to be the worst first pitch we’ve seen thrown by an athlete this season. The Giants, however, came out fired up, scoring a run in the first inning to fire up the crowd right out of the gate.
