White Sox employee’s 1st pitch nails photographer

CHICAGO—A Chicago White Sox employee of the month got to throw out a first pitch. And, to put it mildly, she was just a little bit off target.

The rookie right-hander uncorked one of the most wayward first pitches ever when she plunked a team photographer standing close by, between the mound and the first-base line, before Tuesday’s game against the Kansas City Royals.

The ball went right off Darren Georgia’s lens, nowhere near the plate.

And we thought the White Sox’s pitchers had bad aim….

I wish I could make a Dylan Cease joke, but the White Sox have taught him to throw strikes so I can't....

Well, she hit a target. Maybe not the one she intended, but it still looked more successful than 50 Cent's pitch.

If she worked for me I would have had everyone gather so we could present her with a fake gift card for pitching lessons. And then celebration cupcakes to honor the moment
