After a disastrous first pitch Monday, Tom Brady has returned to his natural position on the baseball diamond.
The New England Patriots quarterback threw out the first pitch at Boston's home opener, and he couldn't get over the plate at Fenway Park. David Ortiz still managed to catch it, but seeing as he is a superstar quarterback hailed for his golden arm, Brady understandably took some flack for his inaccuracy.

In his defense, Brady was a catcher during his high school days.

In a recent post on Facebook, where he has established himself as one of the funniest and most clever pros, Brady took a dig at his poor performance:
Brady was much more accurate on the gridiron than on the mound, and the 37-year-old threw just nine interceptions in 2014. Only Aaron Rodgers, Alex Smith and Russell Wilson had fewer than that.
