via @Nationals

Beloved WRC newscaster Jim Vance was threw out the first pitch at Nats Park on Wednesday as part of the stadium’s Black Heritage Night. Despite being admittedly nervous, Vance threw a respectable pitch to Tyler Clippard, who had coached him on his delivery.

“Thank you Tyler,” Vance said, shaking Clippard’s hand post-catch. “With your help. You made it happen, and I mean that.”

Here is video of the high strike.
