Nick Saban is arguably the greatest college football coach ever but that doesn’t mean he has come close to mastering other sports like he has the one that pays him millions of dollars every year.
Case in point came Wednesday night in Tuscaloosa where the Crimson Tide coach threw out the first pitch prior to the school’s baseball game against Southern Miss. While Alabama joked that they clocked him throwing 90, let’s just say that the full video (via BamaOnLine’s Facebook page) of the pitch shows that Saban will be sticking to football after bouncing it to the plate.
Perhaps we should forgive Saban for the sub par effort given that he spent most of the day running Alabama’s exhaustive Pro Day in the team facilities.
Interestingly, catcher Keith Holcombe (who caught the pitch) is also a key linebacker for the Crimson Tide in the fall. Perhaps after the throw on Wednesday the two can get together for a few pointers to help the coach find the strike zone next year.
