Video: Aaron Craft Throws Out First Pitch for the Clippers

By 11W Staff on April 12, 2013 at 9:41p

Aaron Craft threw out the first pitch for the Columbus Clippers Friday night at Huntington Park. The pitch was a solid effort as far as these things go: decent heat, over the plate and a bit high just to let the imaginary batter know that the next pitch was going to force a change in the possession arrow.

I guess Aaron Craft is not our Dennard Robinson.

Nice one, Craft.  Man...Denard throws like a wuss!  (I felt I had to edit my original comment about how Denard throws.  Keep it PG-13.)

Best part is LSU FREEK has nothing to add. Craft has better arm than Cereal Eater. Hyde topped that crap to make it played out.

Perfect speed and trajectory. Not too low to bounce, but not embarrassingly high. Exceptional ceremonial first pitch.

Ohio State's Point Guard throws a better ball than Michigan's happy Craft is among "Columbiaus'" best

I'm surprised he didn't throw it, run to the dug out, put catcher's gear on, eat a hot dog, then run to get behind the plate to catch his pitch.

Way to go Aaron!  One of the hardest working guys in sports getting it done!  Well done, no embarrasing pitch there.  That one wasn't Denarded! 
Go Bucks.

Obviously Aaron eats eggs and toast for breakfast.

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

That pitch sucked.  It didn't bounce or anything ;D. AC making Buckeye Nation prouder.

The catcher asked for a high heater and that's what he got.

I am D-Day0043 and I approve this message.

This is a lot better throw than the famous one-arm punt from that guy at the Tigers game. From the camera angle, it looked like Craft threw some chin music to the plate.
