Hello, it's Adam 12, life-long baseball nerd and Red Sox fan. Most Sox fans only dream of throwing out the first pitch at a home game. I've now had that honor not once, but twice. I'm a lucky guy. And grateful.

If there's one rule of thumb, though, when I'm scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a Red Sox game, it's this: IT WILL RAIN. I waited out a two hour rain delay last September before taking the field, was rained out completely last Thursday, and had to deal with a brief deluge before returning to the mound on Monday.

Not that I'm complaining. Everyone at Fenway Park was friendly and accommodating. Cam, the ball attendant who'd be catching my pitch, asked me what I'd be throwing. I said: "I'm not going to gun a fastball at you, but I will throw a strike." And I think that I did. Take a look.

Poor Cam. Did I throw it too hard? She claimed after the pitch that she should've practiced more, but maybe I should have. You can let me know in the comments.


Here's my first pitch from last September for comparison.
