Capitals star Alex Ovechkin truly can do no wrong in the Washington D.C. area right now.
Ovie’s stock is so high that he was awarded the opportunity to throw out a first pitch — twice — before Saturday’s Giants-Nationals game.
His first attempt sailed well over Max Scherzer’s head, so Ovie was awarded a second chance. He asked for another shot, and it was granted. The second throw was a better one.
When you can score goals like he does, throwing a baseball just really doesn’t matter, in the grand scheme of things.
