A.J. Giardina throws out a Shuckers ceremonial first pitch

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A.J. Giardina may be done with is broadcasting career, but he still has a few throws left in the 'ole cannon.

The Biloxi Shuckers honored the recently-retired WLOX legend before their Friday contest against Tennessee, showing a tribute video on the jumbotron honoring his 39 years covering South Mississippi, and with a ceremonial first pitch.

You can see for yourself in the video, but A.J. threw a nice strike!

"I did throw it down the middle, which, I was surprised, but practice does make perfect," the former WLOX Sports Director said with a smile.

When asked if maybe a baseball career is now in the books?

"Let's put it this way, only in my dreams," Giardina laughed. "There's no way!"
