LOOK: Ezekiel Elliott throws out first pitch at St. Louis Cardinals game
Ezekiel Elliott returns to St. Louis for some well-deserved celebrity attention.
With spring practice well and truly behind us, we've entered the stretch of the calendar we ought to collectively agree to call the Johnny Manziel Memorial First Pitch Season -- that magical time of year when college football luminaries pop up at major league ballparks to toss out ceremonial pitches left and right.
Urban Meyer may or may not be able to get into the act on Friday, but his Heisman Trophy-candidate running back at Ohio State has beaten him to the punch regardless. St. Louis native Ezekiel Elliott threw out the first pitch for the Cardinals before their 7-4 Tuesday evening win over the hated Cubs. Eliott passed along the following clip of his appearance on Twitter. Nice form!

If Elliott's coach does that well, he'll be doing pretty good.
