Former Badger Montee Ball throws out first pitch, takes over cameraman duties at Miller Park

In celebration of his college exploits at Wisconsin -- including 5.6 yards per carry and an NCAA record 77 career rushing touchdowns -- Monty Hall Montee Ball tossed out the first pitch at Thursday's Brewers-Giants game. He also stuck around afterward for some on-the-spot vocational training in television production.

Ball hijacked a camera and did his best to capture the game, but admitted his performance was less than stellar.

He had such a good time and was so proud of his pitch, he even considered trying this baseball thing full time.

Considering he's projected to go anywhere between the second and fourth rounds, maybe baseball wouldn't be the worst backup plan for the young running back.
