Has anyone ever been asked to hang around in the bullpen after throwing out the first pitch?
New England Revolution All-Star goalkeeper Matt Turner, who has also played for Team USA this year, is pretty good at his day job. But between his performance on the mound and the flailing Boston Red Sox pitching staff, perhaps Turner shouldn't venture too far from Fenway Park.
As seen in the video, courtesy of WBZ's Dan Roche, Turner fired a perfect strike prior to Boston's game against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday night.
Turner, 27, has been a key player for the league-leading Revolution, going 8-2-4 with a 1.14 goals against average and a .750 save percentage in 14 starts this season.
