Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was at U.S. Cellular Field this afternoon to throw out the first pitch before the White Sox took on the A's. He spent some time warming up beforehand.

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was at U.S. Cellular Field this afternoon to throw out the first pitch before the White Sox took on the A's. He spent some time warming up beforehand.

But when he got on the mound, Noah and his 6'11" frame couldn't quite reach the plate. So he asked for a redo, firing a strike on take two.

Noah must have been watching when Bob Costas pulled the same trick.
