Schiano Sails Fastball Way Over TargetJune 1st, 2012
The leader of the New Schiano Order took to the Tropicana Field mound to toss out the first pitch at the Rays-Orioles game tonight. Sadly, reports on the Rays official website claim Greg Schiano threw a screamer that went far over guest catcher Joe Maddon’s head and to the backstop.
Earlier in the day on Pro Football Talk Live, Schiano said he was “going to throw my high cutter and see if it won’t come down over the plate.” Apparently, Schiano’s mechanics were off.
Joe was a bit surprised Schiano didn’t don a Rays jersey or at least a Rays hat for the festivities, as Raheem Morris and other Bucs players have done previously when bestowed the same honor.
As you can see in the photo, Schiano stuck with his Bucs polo.
