Once upon a time, John Wall threw one of the worst first pitches by a non-mayor of all time (see below). On Thursday night, the point guard was given a second chance before the Washington Nationals took on the Chicago White Sox. Wall walked over to the mound with a nervous look and...
...lobbed a strike over the plate to Nats pitcher Gio Gonzalez who was catching. A pitch that caused announcer FP Santangelo to call Wall a "pie tosser"
After the Folly Floater, Wall hugged Gio and walked towards the dugout while Gonzalez heckled him for his pitch. Then Screech jumps in, and gives Wall a hug.

Wall's pitch was such a floater that it probably would have gone over the backboard on a basketball court, overcompensating for the last time when he hit the ground 5 feet in front of the mound.
