Green Bay Packers linebacker Blake Martinez was at the Milwaukee Brewers game today to throw out the first pitch. We’ll get to that in a minute.
What we learned in the process is that Martinez has a blossoming bromance Brewers closer Corey Knebel. The pair traded jerseys and Martinez wore Knebel’s No. 46 onto the field.

Big thanks to @Big__Blake50 for hooking me up with his jersey! I’ll be repping it for every game! Good luck with your baby girl, my wife’s got some tips if y’all need. #GoPackGo pic.twitter.com/4mKnHAHO9P

Here’s the actual pitch, although from not a very good angle.

It looks like it was kind of a lob from that angle. Martinez certainly has the muscle to get it over, but looks like he was going more of the just don’t embarrass yourself route.
