Jim Thome airmails first pitch

Well, that's embarrassing.

Jim Thome spent a lot of his career as a designated hitter, and with his first pitch for the Chicago White Sox’s Triple-A affiliate Thome showed why.

Heads up in the first row!

That first pitch was absolutely brutal, but then again, Thome hit 612 home runs so it is tough to make fun of him too much.

I’m not sure whose was worse, Thome’s or Carly Rae Jepsen’s from last year.
