Remember Caron Butler’s disastrous first pitch at a Nats game back in 2007? And how he then practiced so he could do better and demanded another shot?

“I’m not doing it for the media attention, I’m doing it for my own inner confidence,” he once told me. “Brother, I ain’t been right since that damn pitch. I’ve got to go back and find myself.”

Well, I can’t even imagine the psychological ramifications of what John Wall did Friday night at the Nats game. Looked like he was skipping rocks or something. Or trying to throw the baseball through the ground. Truly remarkable.

And bravo to Drew Storen for somehow keeping the ball from reaching the backstop, even while laughing at the spectacle.
