Wearing a red Nationals’ #32 Tom Gorzelanny jersey (perhaps in honor of Dale Hunter?), Jason Chimera, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Sunday’s Orioles/Nats game. Chimmer, who got a loud ovation when he took the field, threw high and hard — we’re going to call it a ball — to Gorzelanny, a pitcher who played catcher for the moment. And yeah, Chimera brought along his son Cale.
Video is below the jump.
“I was a little nervous,” Chimera said to CSN Washington after the pitch. “It’s a little different at Nationals Park where there’s 30,000 – 40,000 people looking at you. But it was fun.”
“Some of the guys warned me in the clubhouse not to spike the [pitch] on the ground,” Chimera happily grinned.
Way to go, Jason.
