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.
