DeJuan Blair the baseball pitcher?


San Antonio Spurs’ forward, DeJuan Blair proved to every NBA team that passed on drafting him during the 2009 NBA Draft that he does have what it takes to make it in the NBA despite the lack of ACLs.

But can Blair prove to the MLB he can “bring the heat” on the pitching mound?

This Wednesday, Blair will be throwing out the first pitch for the MLB’s Pittsburgh Pirates:

Former University of Pittsburgh basketball player DeJuan Blair will throw out Wednesday’s ceremonial first pitch at PNC Park.

Good luck Blair. Just make sure to take it easy. No need for any freak accidents on the pitching mound. Did I just jinx him?
