Jim Delany

Jim Delany was in New York on Monday for the announcement of the conference's partnership with the New York Yankees and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. Hours after the release of the news, the commissioner threw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium, home of the Pinstripe Bowl.

Delany, sporting a No. 14 Yankees jersey, with his surname on the back (against Yankee tradition), didn't embarrass himself with the toss.

Yes, it was a little bit short, but it looked good out of his hand and was in the direction of home plate. It could have been a lot worse. After all, world-class athletes are responsible for this and this.
