Jordan Spieth’s left arm has been getting quite a bit of throwing practice lately. Less than two weeks ago, Spieth, a Dallas native, threw the ceremonial first pitch at the Texas Rangers game. On Tuesday evening, Spieth had the same honor at Fenway Park ahead of the face-off between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.
How did the reigning Masters and U.S. Open champion fare?
Well, I think he’s probably happier with the one from the Rangers game, as his toss tonight came up high and outside. Check it out:
Regardless, it was a special moment.
“This is so much fun,” Spieth told NESN.com. (It’s) the greatest ballpark in the world, and to be able to step on the mound and throw a pitch on it is a dream come true. It’s a dream for my dad come true, too. He wanted me to be a pitcher when I was young, he played college baseball, so it’s cool to have him here.”
Spieth is in town for this week’s Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Mass. I’m not sure how the he feels about the Red Sox, but he’s rooting for them to beat the Yankees, obviously — who are fighting his Rangers for a wildcard spot.
