Video: Kyrie Irving throws out first pitch at Indians game


Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving traded in his Nike Hyperrev’s for a pair of baseball cleats yesterday, as he took batting practice with the Cleveland Indians and threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game against the Los Angeles Angels yesterday. Irving was also in the Indians’ locker room pre-game and was given a custom jersey with his No. 2 and Irving across the back. The Indians defeated the Angels by a final score of  4-3 behind the pitching arms of Trevor Bauer and Carlos Carrasco.

Irving was ribbed by teammate C.J. Miles about his pitch on Twitter, who wondered if Irving’s first pitch was as bad as 50 Cent’s.

Of course, Irving had a quick response.
