We already know New York Giants first-round pick Kayvon Thibodeaux can play football, but how is he on the pitching mound? The defensive end was a guest at Yankee Stadium and was invited to throw the first pitch before Game 2 of the doubleheader between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox.
Thibodeaux was sporting a Yankees No. 5 jersey, after his own football number, and wore a Yankees hat as well to support the home team.
Take a look at his pitch:
Thibodeaux seemed excited about the opportunity, tweeting before the game, "Throwing the first pitch at the @Yankees game Tonight!!!"
The crowd stood up and cheered as the Giants rookie got ready to throw the ceremonial first pitch. The 21-year-old's pitch was a little high, so maybe he should stick to football, but the crowd still loved his performance.
Thibodeaux was taken out of Oregon with the No. 5 overall pick. He is a solid pick and a pass-rusher who proved himself in college. His resume includes winning Pac-12 Defensive Freshman of the Year in 2019 and earning first-team All-Pac-12 honors in 2020 and
