The Detroit Tigers added Wilson Betemit for his bat, not how he flashes the leather. Anyone who follows baseball understands this quite well.

On Thursday, Wilson was in the lineup replacing longtime Tiger Brandon Inge, and since it was his first day, he clearly wanted to impress everyone.

He failed miserably, making what could be the worst throw from third base ever.

This crime against humanity can be seen here.

Betemit, acquired from Kansas City in a trade earlier this week, went 1-for-4 with a run scored in his Tigers debut Thursday night, a 6-2 victory at Minnesota. He needs only one more hit in July to equal the monthly total for Brandon Inge, the man he is replacing. So, that’s the good.

The bad: He’s already a leader in the Tigers clubhouse for ugliest play of the season.

The only possibility for this dreadful throw is that Betemit was engaged in one mean game of dodgeball with the pitcher. Hopefully he can get those first-game jitters out of the way and actually throw the ball past the pitcher’s mound next time.

Hopefully.
