After incredibly raising over $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, there was no better choice than Texans superstar J.J. Watt to throw out the first pitch before Game 3 of the World Series in Houston.

However, Watt is out for the season with a broken leg, so would he still be able to throw out the first pitch? You’re damn right he would!

Watt walked out to the Minute Maid Park mound on crutches to a huge ovation and threw a pitch that was nowhere close to the strike zone, but we’ll let that slide.

Watt’s pitching performance wasn’t any worse than Yu Darvish on the night. The Astros roughed up the Dodgers’ starter for four earned runs in 1 2/3 innings (and the last two outs came on rocket line drives).
