I mentioned yesterday assistant head coach Russ Grimm would be throwing out the first pitch at an Angels’ spring training game, in an outing set to honor Grimm’s election into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. So the office closed down for the afternoon and everyone went to see Grimm toss the baseball. Despite Grimm insisting he would have a hard time getting it to home plate, he of course made a fine pitch — caught by Angels’ starting pitcher Joe Saunders, who happened to grow up in Virginia rooting for the Redskins and Grimm (UPDATE: And here is the video of the pitch). Grimm also had a pre-game chat with Angels owner Arte Moreno and Royals special instructor George Brett (a baseball Hall of Famer and a football Hall of Famer hanging out!), including an inquiry by Brett of just why NFL coaches spend so many crazy hours in the office.
It’s a question I often wonder myself.
