Video: Sixers’ Ben Simmons Tosses Out First Pitch at Citizens Bank Park
Sixers rookie point guard Ben Simmons is known for his southpaw shooting motion, but that’s only when it comes to shooting a basketball. On Saturday afternoon, however, the Sixers star, tried his hand at throwing a baseball....with his right hand.
Simmons took the mound to throw the first pitch before the Phillies-Blue Jays game, to loud cheers. Ity was pretty anticipated to see what hand he would throw the pitch with, as some analyst have suggested that he is shooting the basketball with the wrong hand.
The throw didn't have a lot of mustard on it – but it was a strike.
