Biggers Throws First Pitch For Baysox

New Redskins cornerback E.J. Biggers has been training hard each and every day at Redskins Park during the team’s offseason conditioning program.

However, this past Sunday he was able to take a break from football. One day following the culmination of the 2013 NFL Draft, Biggers was in attendance at the Class-AA Bowie Baysox game to throw out the first pitch (we’ll take a look at his technique a little bit later in this post).

But for Biggers, the day had a deeper meaning than simply throwing out the first pitch.

He was there to promote a charity softball game between a team of NFL players and the Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball team which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 1 at Prince George’s Stadium. Representing the Redskins on the NFL team will be wide receiver Joshua Morgan, tight end Fred Davis and fullback Darrel Young.

If you’re interested in attending the charity softball game, you can purchase tickets here. Proceeds will support Wounded Warrior organizations, the Yellow Ribbon Fund and the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team.

Now E.J. wasn’t the first Redskins player to throw out a first pitch this offseason. About one month ago, linebacker Ryan Kerrigan was invited to throw out the first pitch for the Richmond Flying Squirrels, Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, located just blocks away from the new Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center.

As far as Biggers’ form on the mound Sunday…well, the pitch was reminiscent of Henry Rowengartner’s lob in the movie Rookie of the Year. But who are we to judge? Check it out for yourself!

    Way to go Biggsy! Does he have ties to Bowie at all? An Orioles fan maybe? Either way, great to see someone so new to the skins involved in such a great thing.
