Dr. Anthony Fauci is one of the most recognizable faces around the United States.

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since all the way back in 1984, he’s been among those on the front lines attempting to help the country battle the ongoing pandemic.

The respected Dr. Fauci was at Nationals Park Thursday to throw out the first pitch ahead of the 2020 MLB season opener between the Nationals and Yankees.

It did not go too swimmingly.

That actually might have been one of the worst first pitches in the entire history of baseball.

Needless to say, those watching it from home had their jokes. Some good. Others bad.
