Backstrom Pitches a Strike

Per the Caps website:

“Washington Capitals center and 2006 first-round draft pick Nicklas Backstrom threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Washington Nationals-Baltimore Orioles game this afternoon at RFK Stadium. Backstrom, a native of Gavle, Sweden, attending his first baseball game, delivered a strike over the plate in front of the crowd of 29,281 before the Nats’ 4-3 win.”
