The first pitch at the Red Sox game didn’t quite go as planned
The ceremonial first pitch at Wednesday’s Red Sox game, well, it’s getting a lot of attention on Twitter.
Pediatric cancer survivor Jordan Leandre threw out the pitch — which was juuust a bit outside — as the Red Sox honored the Jimmy Fund and the 1967 “Impossible Dream” team before the game.
Soon after the pitch, Red Sox beat reporter Chris Mason for CNHI Sports Boston identified the ultimate recipient of the pitch as his photographer, Tony Capobianco.
Leandre also made headlines in 2007 when he rounded the bases at Fenway after singing the National Anthem.
He and Capobianco have been having fun with the misfire on Twitter.

E-Rod struggling tonight, it's a shame they didn't leave me in. I was just getting warmed up— Jordan Leandre (@JordanLeandre55) August 16, 2017
