CBS3 caught up with Teller after his first pitch Wednesday night. It was his second time throwing out a first pitch at a Phils game.
‘The first one I threw to [Jake] Arrieta, this one to Ryan Howard,” Teller said. “Dude, I was trying to play baseball my whole life. Then you have the Phanatic telling you don’t mess up and everybody telling you don’t bounce it. And then [Nick] Castellanos said, ‘Let it eat. Throw from the rubber and let it eat.'”MORE NEWS: 21-Year-Old Woman Killed After Disgruntled Patron Fires At Least 15 Shots Into Northeast Philadelphia Bar, Police Say
