Cristiano Ronaldo throws out first pitch at Dodgers game, hilarity ensues

Video

Cristiano Ronaldo is a world-class athlete and one of the best soccer players on Earth (unless Derrick Rose thinks he’s the best at that, too). But that doesn’t mean the man can throw a baseball.

His first pitch at Wednesday night’s Dodgers-Yankees game may not have been the worst ever, but it has to be on the list.

He then took a mulligan and redeemed himself with his second pitch.

"You throw like a soccer player" has replaced "You throw like a girl."

Kinda doubt "world class athlete" for kicking and running around.  MOST world class athletes can THROW a baseball as well as other things. But it is soccer so who cares?

@WHO*IS*ESPN  Haha I would love to see you or some top MLB players try to control a football/soccer ball.  Oh and who cares?  It is only the most popular sport on the plant.  But yeah, you're right. LOL

Show me a "world class athlete" who can make a decent first pitch at a baseball game. Honestly, the only good first pitch i have ever seen, came from george bush. A college qb threw the baseball like a 4 year old girl. Same goes for a basketball player who just signed an $80 million contract. To rag on a soccer player for not being "world class" just makes you sound like a fool.

@WHO*IS*ESPNYeah, Denard Robinson isn't much of an athlete. Neither is Carl Lewis. Or Olympic gymnast gold medalist Shawn Johnson.

I was a helluva pitcher in my youth and all around athlete. But I couldn't kick a soccer ball for crap. So he gets a pass from me. Doesn't matter how great you are in one sport, if it's not your thing, you'll probably suck at it.
