New Contender for Worst First Pitch of the Year

Wow.

Ceremonial first pitches in Japan are a little more extravagant than the ones we're used to at MLB ballparks, but at the end of the day, the ball has to get from the mound to the plate. In this case, it didn't quite hit the mark.

This has to be up there as an honorable mention for one of the worst first pitches ever thrown.
