Video: Alex Ovechkin's First Pitch Was Horrible

Alex Ovechkin throws out the first pitch.

It's something that many fail to do well. From presidents to Olympic athletes, people from all over the world struggle to throw a baseball accurately. The trouble with that?

Most of the time, these people are doing so on the largest of stages.

NHL star Alex Ovechkin joined those who have struggled in the past. Lucky for him, the crowd wasn't great.

Here's video of Ovechkin throwing out the first pitch at the Nationals game today.

He let it fly just a bit early.

No worries for Ovechkin, though. He got a second chance and tossed it right down the middle.

Oh, and he brought a championship to the city's capitol after winning the Stanley Cup earlier this week. All in all, not a bad week for the Russian star.
