Dr. Anthony Fauci Delivers First Pitch for the Ages on Opening Day

Dr. Anthony Fauci probably never envisioned being such a public figure in his lifetime, but here he is throwing out the first pitch on MLB’s Opening Day on July 23. Let’s be clear that Dr. Fauci is not a young man (79 years old) and outside of Bartolo Colon, we haven’t seen too many 75+ year olds throw a baseball with any sort of significant velocity or accuracy.

Noted as being a former basketball player, maybe expectations were too high in Dr. Fauci’s pitching debut, but here we go.

Angel Hernandez actually called this one a strike, but to many viewers the pitch was a bit low and outside.
