PLAYERS: Denard Robinson
TEAMS:

Denard Robinson could do nothing but laugh at himself last week when he one-hopped a ceremonial pitch to the plate prior to the Detroit Tigers’ game with Toronto. Given a second shot to throw out a first pitch, Robinson fared much better. Before the Michigan Wolverines took down Notre Dame for their 10th consecutive win, Robinson, sporting a No. 42 jersey in honor of Jackie Robinson, found the plate from the pitcher’s mound. Video, courtesy of MLive.com: Denard Robinson’s former Michigan teammate, Elliot Mealer, was one of several members of the Wolverines football program on hand for the occasion. He tweeted out a couple quick videos via Vine, one of Robinson warming up and then another of Robinson walking to the mound and firing his pitch.
