The Red Sox home opener at Fenway means the ceremonial first pitch was going to be a big one. Ignore that Tom Brady is probably a Yankees fan, and instead just revel in what we absolutely know for certain: the New England Patriots' quarterback, a multi-time Super Bowl champion, is throwing out the first pitch to David Ortiz, three-time World Series champion with the Red Sox.
From Brady to Ortiz. How bout that combo @Patriots? #Champs pic.twitter.com/60NhMOrcJs— Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) April 13, 2015
Sports, y'all! This isn't the first time Brady has tossed out the first pitch at Fenway for being Tom Brady, of course:
The Sox hadn't won their own championship yet -- at least not one anyone was still alive to recount -- but they would come. As would a few more Patriots' victories here and there.
