James Harden Throws Out 1st Pitch Before Tigers-Astros Game

Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistJune 29, 2014

James Harden is a star athlete in Houston, but it looks like he picked the right sport.

Harden had the privilege of throwing out the first pitch before the Detroit Tigers-Houston Astros game on Sunday. There have been some pretty terrible first pitches this season, but he made sure that he didn't join that list.

It looks like the umpire may have given the Houston Rockets star a generous strike zone. 

Although Harden's first pitch was a bit high, he certainly didn't embarrass himself.
