Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel was down in San Diego to work with quarterback coach George Whitfield Jr. He took the time to take in a Padres game, where he whacked a home run in batting practice before proceeding to throw a rather unique ceremonial first pitch.
Manziel dropped back on the mound, and rolled out to his left before throwing the baseball across his body to Mark Kotsay. See it here.
Kotsay, in a show of gamesmanship, caught the ball behind his back.
