Redskins.com intern Brian Tinsman gives us an update on Redskins first-round draft pick linebacker Ryan Kerrigan.
Ryan Kerrigan’s mastery on the football field is well-documented. His time as a high school basketball player has already been covered, as have his superior swimming abilities. But wait, there’s more!
While most of the country was celebrating our nation’s armed forces with family time and backyard cookouts, Kerrigan was moonlighting as a baseball player.
Well, sort of.
Kerrigan did the honors of throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at the minor league baseball game between the Indianapolis Indians and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.
The Indians, the Triple-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates, were Kerrigan’s hometown team growing up. The home stadium, Victory Field, is considered one of the finest minor league baseball facilities in the country.
Kerrigan first invited everyone out to the game, via twitter (@RyanKerrigan):
Now I’ve been watching baseball for a long time, and I have no idea what “hot stinky cheddar” is. Curiosity caused me to look it up, and unsurprisingly, no one had ever used that hash-tag before. But apparently it’s a good thing, because more than 8,000 fans showed up.
Kerrigan then walked us through the warming up process:
The man knows how to hype a performance. I can’t wait to see his sack dance!
In the aftermath, Kerrigan assessed his performance:
We don’t have visual evidence, but I think he was referencing something like this. Either way, it sounds like Kerrigan was satisfied with his football path and will not be tempted to find a more permanent gig on the pitcher’s mound.
