UNC Basketball: Armando Bacot to throw out first pitch at Camden Yards

UNC basketball standout Armando Bacot is expected to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Camden Yards on Friday night. 

We’ve seen a bunch of the different talents that UNC basketball standout Armando Bacot has in his repertoire.

Along with being one of the best college basketball players in the country, Bacot has shown that he is a very good recruiter, and is on the verge of beginning a newly-found career as an actor. This week, it looks like Bacot will test his talents in another sport, as he’ll make his way towards the baseball diamond.

As reported by Jimmy’s Famous Seafood, Bacot is expected to throw out the first pitch on Friday night at Camden Yards, the home of the Baltimore Orioles. We’ll see the UNC basketball standout attempt to throw a strike in his only attempt Friday to the actual first pitch of the game.

Even though seeing his first pitch will be interesting, it is intriguing to think about what Bacot could do if he gets the chance to swing the bat a bit during batting practice. At 6-foot-10, 240 pounds, Bacot could do some serious damage to a baseball if he gets ahold of one!

For Tar Heels fans around the world, the Orioles should make this opportunity happen. Who knows: maybe Bacot will impress enough to earn himself a Major League Baseball contract.

Given what we know about Bacot, he is a man of many talents! Wouldn’t be a surprise at all to see him thrive in another sport!
