Tom Brady throws out ceremonial first pitch at Fenway

Print

Fun fact: Tom Brady was once selected in the 18th round of the 1995 Major League Baseball Draft by the Montreal Expos.

Brady chose Indiana Jones-level wisely in deciding to pursue football instead. On Monday, Brady found himself back on the diamond, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch for the Red Sox home opener at Fenway Park.

Credit to Brady for throwing from the rubber and not the bottom of the mound as many first-pitchers do. Credit to Big Papi for scooping up Brady's errant toss, a 55-footer that crossed the home plate vicinity on a bounce.

And now, just to get you Boston fans all verklempt, here's Brady taking some batting practice from Red Sox great Pedro Martinez. Say hi to your mother for me.
