A couple months after signing a three-year deal to return to the Clippers, Austin Rivers threw out the first pitch at a Dodgers game.

Totally normal, right? Well, get this: apparently Rivers has not only never thrown a baseball before, he’s never even been to a baseball game.

Growing up with a father who was a professional athlete, even in another sport, that seems literally impossible. But apparently it’s true.
