Watch Cardale Jones throw out a first pitch for the Cleveland Indians

The Buckeye quarterback tried his hand at being a pitcher for at least one night.

First it was Urban Meyer. Then Ezekiel Elliott. Now, Cardale Jones has gotten chance to take the mound for the ceremonial first pitch during the Cleveland Indians game Friday. After a back and forth with the team last month on Twitter, Jones, a Cleveland native, was given the opportunity to put his pitching skills to the test for his home team.

Just like everything else he does, he went in with a mission to throw a great first pitch, one he joked that could be used as his try-out for the team. Jones headed North with former Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith in tow to participate in the pre-game activities, received his custom Indians jersey and made his way to the mound.
