03:07 PM ET 04.08 | Johnny Manziel is more of a Johnny Football than a Johnny Baseball, and he proved it with his first pitch at a Texas Rangers game.

The Rangers - close enough to College Station - honored Manziel for his Heisman win with the honor of throwing out the first pitch at their game on Sunday, and it didn't go so well. His pitch went high and wide, making his story that he talked to Texas A&M baseball coaches about joining the hardball team in the football offseason seem somewhat unlikely.

Especially considering baseball was thought to be his best sport coming out of high school.
