When you're the head coach of a Division 1 college basketball team, there tends to be a perk or seven that gets thrown your way. If you happen to coach in the same town as a Major League Baseball team, you tend to get invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of a game.
That's what happened for Marquette's Steve Wojciechowski for Tuesday night's contest between the Milwaukee Brewers and the visiting Kansas City Royals. I think he did a pretty good job, too:

Nice and easy, laying right on in there for Brewers manager Craig Counsell to snag. Definitely way better than last year's effort.
