It was a week of firsts for Missouri head coach Barry Odom. He spoke at his first media days. He dealt with his first major crisis, as the athletic director Mack Rhoades took the job at Baylor.
And now he’s thrown out his first pitch.
Odom and his family attended Friday’s game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Miami Marlins. Odom was also asked to throw out the game’s first pitch. The former Missouri linebacker showed off he was quite the athlete.

Odom’s pitch went much better than some of his fellow SEC coaches, such as Nick Saban and Kevin Sumlin. Check out their first pitches below.
