What Is This Veteran Doing!? You Won’t Believe How He Throws Out the First PitchThe Veterans Site
You’ve seen them time and again, right, these ceremonial first pitches? I bet you have. But I also bet that you haven’t seen anything like this. This is perhaps the most unique pitch I’ve ever seen in my entire life.
In the video, you’ll see retired U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Brian Keaton playfully take the mound and put his own spin on the ceremony. Keaton, who served in the United States Army for 20 years, was wounded while deployed to Iraq. He went on to spend three-and-a-half years in the hospital in order to recover from a severe brain injury, as well as the PTSD symptoms that lingered. Now he wants to pay it forward by helping other military families.
As you’ll see, even while transitioning to civilian life, Brian Keaton certainly hasn’t forgotten how to have fun.
What a cool guy and an amazing warrior veteran!
