Chris Pratt Throws Out a Terribly Adorable First Pitch
By Jackie Willis
We finally found something Chris Pratt is NOT good at.
The Guardians of the Galaxy actor threw out the first pitch at the Chicago Cubs versus the Milwaukee Brewers game at Wrigley Field on Wednesday, but the throw didn't quite make it over home plate. Pratt didn't seem to mind as he adorably shrugged off the terrible pitch.
Deshaies was quick to point out that Pratt played a baseball player in the film Moneyball, to which he responded, "Luckily he was a guy who had an arm injury and didn't have to throw the ball that often."
While most people choose to throw out the first pitch donning a baseball hat of the team they're pitching for, Pratt wore a Groot hat, representing Vin Diesel's character in Guardians of the Galaxy. "Groot is a character in Guardians of the Galaxy, but also a local waste management company," Pratt explained. "So I’m representing both Chicago and the movie the Guardians of the Galaxy at the same time with the same hat."
When the interview was over, Pratt was eager to sing "Take Me Out the Ball Game," and make everyone fall in love with him all over again.
He can't throw a pitch but he can certainly braid hair. Check out the actor french braiding an ET intern's hair in the middle of an interview.
