Once he returned from injury, John Wall has made many believers this season. His scoring is up, his ridiculous-catch-them-from-behind blocks are up, and he looks like he could really become the star we all hoped for when Wall was drafted No. 1 in 2010.
But there is still one thing Wall hasn’t fixed. Remember that first pitch he threw out at Nats Park a few years ago? It was awful.
Well, tonight, Wall has a chance to fix it. Word is he is taking the task serious, according to a story from CSN’s J. Michael:
“I just want to make sure I get it to the mound. As long as I don’t hit the dirt, I’m cool. I don’t want it to be like I did last time,” Wall said. “Everybody thinks it’s easy.”
Good luck tonight John. We’ll all be watching.
**UPDATE** Wall threw the pitch, and it reached the plate. Video after the jump.
