This might just be the cutest pitch ever.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s 1-year-old daughter Luna threw the first pitch at Safeco Field before the Seattle Mariners and Minnesota Twins game on Tuesday.
His dad, Bobby Bonds, was a star for the Giants in the 1970s, but Barry opted to play for Arizona State because, according to this report , the Giants offered $70,000 instead of meeting the asking price of $75,000. Sheesh. Instead, he played at ASU, then was drafted by the Pirates and helped that club to three playoff appearances (winning two NL MVPs) before eventually joining the Giants as a free agent in 1993.
Kids Alexei Kovalev Jersey Before he was on the NFL’s radar, Jordan was a star baseball player at Milford Mill Academy in Baltimore, and Cleveland wanted him in its organization. His parents, though, insisted that he should go to college first , and that worked out pretty well. At the University of Richmond, Jordan developed into a football star, too, and wound up with a successful dual-sport career (he was a first-round pick of the Cardinals in the 1988 MLB Draft and played parts of three seasons for the Falcons in the NFL). Side note: Jordan wasn’t the only two-sport star drafted in the 20th round of the 1985 draft; six picks after Cleveland drafted Jordan, the Angels drafted Bo Jackson (who didn’t sign). Crazy.
Few players have a more convoluted draft history than Seaver. You can read all about his three-team eligible/ineligible issues involving the 1966 draft here , but we’re going to look at the 1965 draft, when the Dodgers picked him in the 10th round out of USC. He reportedly wanted $70,000 but the Dodgers balked at that price. The scout who said he wasn’t worth that? Tommy Lasorda . Yep.
