Stephen A. Smith’s Awful First Pitch Gets Him Clowned

ESPN sports analyst Stephen A. Smith is known for his braggadocio, but he may have a reason to stay silent after his latest antics in front of a camera.

At Yankee Stadium in the Bronx Thursday night, Smith threw out the game’s ceremonial first pitch and came up extremely short. The controversial announcer, walking with as much confidence as LeBron James on a basketball court, may have to withstand whatever biting comments come his way.
Twitter users had a “ball” after watching Smith’s ineptitude.

Just a bit short, @stephenasmith! 😅

At least it was in line with home plate!

It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person. The person who is always quick to point out the flaws of everyone else, couldn’t even reach the catcher. EMBARRASSING!!

SAS gonna hear about it from the First Take crew!

Even Sister Mary Jo Sobieck put Smith to shame when she took the mound 5 years ago.

According to NJ.com, Smith responded to his pitch in the YES broadcast booth. He admitted that he choked while he was on the pitching mound.

He continued: “Listen, I want to go up on the hill, man. I stood up there and I’m like, ‘I can’t believe how far this is.’…And then, not only that, they would coach me to let it go sooner and I followed through and then let it go. I let it go too late. And you don’t get warmups on the mound, man. I choked.”
Indeed, you did Mr. Smith, indeed you did.
