The Golden State Warriors’ NBA championship promotional campaign continued on Sunday, when center Festus Ezeli threw out the ceremonial first pitch at O.co Coliseum prior to the Oakland Athletics’ game with the Seattle Mariners. 

While video of Ezeli’s pitch doesn’t appear to be streamable online, the A’s Twitter account did post a series of photos from his visit that are amusing considering the height difference between the 6’11" Ezeli and the A’s, who look to be more than a few inches shorter on average: 

Ezeli’s appearance at the A’s game came a few days after teammate Harrison Barnes had the same honor of tossing out the first pitch, which he did admirably by throwing a strike to Josh Reddick.
