Denard Robinson throws out a first pitch, and it is not a good one

College football fans remember what a freakish athlete Denard Robinson was during his career at Michigan. If his latest outing on the pitcher’s mound is any indication, he certainly should stick to the gridiron. Robinson threw out the first pitch before Tuesday’s game between the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays, and, well, it could have gone better. The video is above, and check out the GIF courtesy of CBSSports.com’s Tom Fornelli.

Meanwhile, this seems like as good a time as any to take another look at Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel’s attempt at throwing out a first pitch. At least Johnny Football avoided the dirt, but it’s still just a tad high and outside. View the clip after the jump:

@EastShelbylLuke there is no excuse for bouncing a pitch. The better option is to crank it up and throw it to the screen
