Video: Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater throws out first pitch at Twins game

Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater hasn’t taken a snap under center in an NFL game yet, but the first-round draft pick is already showcasing his arm strength on the baseball diamond.

He was invited to throw out the first pitch during Wednesday afternoon’s Indians-Twins game, and that’s exactly what he did.

The pitch sailed a bit, though, so it appears as if Bridgewater likes to throw the high cheese.

He also hung out with the team’s mascot, Bear.

CBS Sports’ Dane Brugler weighed in with a funny tweet about the pitch—poking fun at all the criticism Bridgewater received when he was put under a microscope at his Pro Day.  

At least no one is talking about whether or not he was wearing a glove.
