Wednesday’s ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park did not go as planned for one unlucky photographer.
Boston Red Sox fan and Ewing’s sarcoma survivor Jordan Leandre, a high school pitcher, threw the first pitch way over the catcher’s head and right into Eagle-Tribune cameraman Tony Capobianco’s groin.
Capobianco bent over in pain.
Later, Leandre joked about the errant pitch.
Had to get him off the plate somehow 🏻♂️

Capobianco got a nice shot the pitch right before it got a nice shot of him.
