Video: Ezekiel Elliott Threw Out The First Pitch For The St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday Night

Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott is used to going right down the middle against opposing defenses. It's no surprise that his first pitch at the St. Louis Cardinals game Tuesday night went right down the middle as well.

Tuesday night, Elliott, a St. Louis native, was given the honor of throwing out the first pitch as the Cardinals took on the Chicago Cubs. Elliott joked earlier in the day the he was planning on wearing a crop-top, but in the end, he decided against the idea. Here's video, via his mother:

Thankfully, Elliott did not add himself to the list of athletes who have failed trying to reach home plate. Zeke's presence was also good luck - the Cardinals won, 7-4.
