Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard D’Angelo Russell showed off his southpaw form, just missing the strike zone Monday night prior to the Dodgers’ dramatic 5-4 win against the visiting San Francisco Giants.

Per the Lakers’ team website:
D’Angelo Russell has gotten used to tossing a ball in front of about 18,000 people as Ohio State’s point guard at Value City Arena. So the pressure was on when he took the mound on Monday at 56,000-seat Dodger Stadium.
Nonetheless, the Lakers rookie threw a solid first pitch to backup catcher Austin Barnes. […] Russell showed up well before the Dodgers took on the San Francisco Giants to get loose in his custom jersey.
