WATCH: Miss Texas sets new low bar for bad first pitches

  • David Whitlock

It’s possible that even 50 Cent has the 2014 “Miss Texas” beat in terms of quality ceremonial first pitches.  In the Lone Star State, known for flame throwing pitchers (Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemens, Clayton Kershaw, Kerry Wood, and Josh Beckett to name a few), Monique Evans, the wearer of the crown and state’s representative for the Miss America pageant, is not exactly cut from the same athletic mold.  Check out the (I don’t even know what to say) pitching form of the Texas beauty as she throws out the first pitch at Globe Life Stadium, home of the Texas Rangers (via


We shouldn’t be too critical, Miss Texas’ God-given talents lie elsewhere.  I certainly wouldn’t want to see Roger or Clayton in a swimsuit competition.  At least 12-year-old Mo’Ne Davis of Little League World Series fame has demonstrated that some girls can throw a baseball, the talent is just not on everyone.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
