Quarterback of the San Fransisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick, threw the first pitch today. Kaepernick played baseball throughout high school and received several Division I scholarships but turned them all down to play football at Nevada. Actually in the 2009 MLB Draft, Kaepernick was selected by the Chicago Cubs in the 43rd round. At the game today, Kaepernick threw the ball and definitely showed off his arm. He threw an outstanding 87 mph. Some MLB pitchers cannot throw that hard.
