Thrown Out Of ….

An Olympic Gold Medalist in canoeing and kayaking, Joe Jacobi relates his tale about the time that he participated in the great Chicago to New York kayak race. Along the way he was asked to throw out the first pitch at a Rochester Red Wings game.

Every baseball fan has to wonder how they would do if they were to have the honor of throwing out the first pitch. However, it’s probably fair to say that no one would consider attempting the feat after paddling 45 miles along the Erie Canal earlier in the day!

Joe graces us with his memories and also participates in an historic moment for Baseballisms.com.

You will be able to follow Joe on Twitter, and watch his color commentary for NBC this summer during the Beijing Olympics.
