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.

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.
Nice throw, Nancy.
Better used for a bench clearing brawl with the Pirates.
