Throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game is an honor, but it's certainly not one of the easiest tasks.
Just trust us on this one.
It adds excess pressure to the situation when you're an athlete. Perhaps you feel your inherent athletic ability will make it easy for you to throw in there for a strike ... right? Well, when it comes to Bobby Jackson, that's not the case.

He bounced it and it went way outside (or inside to a lefty batter). He also lost his sunglasses. Clearly, there was a lot going on.
And despite the way the pitch went, the torment wasn't over. Harry Giles, Buddy Hield and Kyle Guy all made sure to chime in after witnessing the display, and they weren't too nice about it.

It's not as easy as it looks, folks.
