DeAndre Jordan threw out a first pitch, with help from his college pitcher brother

Clippers center and Houston native DeAndre Jordan threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Astros game against the Athletics on Friday night, and he had a baseball connection in his family to prep him. His brother Cory Jordan is a junior pitcher for Grambling State University.

"If I do well, it's because of me," DeAndre said. "If I do bad, it's because of him."

Judge for yourself from the video above: Which Jordan was responsible for the pitch?
