|Guy Boucher, the head coach of the Tampa Bay|
Lightning, shot his pregame first pitch from the
mound Friday at Tropicana Field.
Most first pitches are thrown. This one was struck. Guy Boucher set the ball on the rubber and flipped a wrist shot — for a strike — to catcher Stephen Vogt, who was also holding a hockey stick. Pretty impressive.
The Rays were honoring the 20th anniversary of the Lightning, but that might be as much NHL hockey as we see this season.
