22-Year MLB Veteran Jim Thome Airmails First Pitch

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IIApril 12, 2014

Former 22-year MLB slugger Jim Thome got the opportunity to throw out the opening pitch at the brand new Charlotte Knights stadium.

There must have been a reason he was a designated hitter for most of the end of his career. 

Thome's pitch was terrible, and the fans seemed to be pretty disappointed.
