Former Cavalier Channing Frye Throws Out One of the Worst Ceremonial First Pitches of All-Time

Frye took to twitter to explain exactly what happened:

The Indians even tried to stick up for Frye:

Frye has to make the list of the ‘worst ceremonial first pitches of all-time.’

On that list include Snoop Dogg, Michael Jordan, John Wall, and Gary “Bababooey” Dell’Abate.
