Not all ceremonial first pitches are created equal.
There are some ceremonial first pitches that go over well. These type usually include tossing a strike, or at least throwing the ball around the vicinity of home plate.
Then you have some ceremonial first pitches that don't go over very well at all. The one uncorked at Citi Field Tuesday night before the Mets game can certainly be placed in that category.
Watch as the ball sails well over the head of the catcher and ends up busting the glass on a camera located behind the plate.
