GIF: Darth Vader throws just a terrible ceremonial first pitch
Darth Vader has a history of terrible first pitches. He added to that history in Cincinnati on Friday.
Believe it or not, the Reds are having a Star Wars themed weekend at the Great American Ball Park this weekend. It's kind of a big deal. The Brewers are in town for a three-game series.
Prior to Friday's series opener, Darth Vader threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Or at least he attempted to throw out the ceremonial first pitch:
Eek. Not his best effort.
Of course, Vader has a history of terrible first pitches:
That one came back in 2012. All that time to work on his first pitch skills and that's the best he can do? Weak.
Meanwhile, storm troopers dragged the infield in a minor league game on Friday:
