For Parris Campbell, throwing the opening pitch at the Cincinnati Reds game was fun, but it wasn't home.
Campbell grew up in northeast Ohio, attending Akron's St. Vincent–St. Mary High School. So when his hometown Indians offered him a chance to throw an opening pitch ahead of one of their own home games, Campbell was quick to accept.

Unfortunately for Parris, this attempt wasn't any better than the one in Cincinnati – unless you count strikes off the bounce.

I guess there's a reason he'll be doing the catching of the balls at the NFL level instead of the throwing.
