Marshawn Lynch‘s return home has been nothing but smilesred cards and sunshine.

Add a ceremonial first pitch to that list.

Lynch stuck his hand deeper into the #TownBizness (their hashtag, not mine) on Sunday when he donned a No. 24 Oakland Athletics jersey with Lynch on the back, strolled to the mound at the Oakland Coliseum, looked in for a sign from acting catcher Rajai Davis, shook off the first two pitches, did some stirring hand motion thing and fired a pitch that neither bounced, nor hit the backstop.

Now that you’ve read the description, watch for yourself:

It doesn’t look like it was a strike, but if we broke down good and bad first pitches and tried to pull football-related analysis from them, we would require a mental evaluation. We’d also rank this one above 50 Cent’s toss into the Citi Field backstop.

Either way, it’s been a wonderfully pleasant, almost honeymoon-ish offseason for Lynch as he returns to the game after a year off. It’s too bad he can’t turn things around for the last-place A’s, too.
