Best (Pitch) in the World: CM Punk visits Citi Field

With WrestleMania 29 happening this Sunday at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey, WWE Superstar CM Punk decided to take in a ballgame on Friday night at Citi Field.  The self-proclaimed "Best in the World" threw out the first pitch to Mets catcher John Buck after taking pointers from reliever LaTroy Hawkins.

Punk took the opportunity to throw a jab at the Mets, telling them "it's probably the first time all season you'll have a decent pitcher on the mound." 

He also acknowledged the Twitter war he had with longtime Mets public relations director Jay Horwitz, saying "notoriously for 30 years, Jay Horwitz is just a big mouth." Big mouth or not, Punk seems to have won the war of words (and limbs).
