While they’ve been able to show off their talents on the hardwood, a trio of Kings recently took to the baseball diamond to try their hand at a different sport.
First was Frank Mason III, who threw out the first pitch prior to a game featuring the Kansas City Royals. Donning a custom jersey, Mason III rifled in an impressive throw, receiving a well-deserved ovation from the Kansas City crowd.
On a more local scale, Willie Cauley-Stein was brought in by the Sacramento River Cats to do the honors of a first pitch. The seven-foot center wound up and brought some heat of his own with his delivery.
Most recently, Vince Carter, one of the newest additions to the Kings, participated in a special night organized by a minor league squad. The Daytona Tortugas held #SagerStrongNight to honor the late legendary broadcaster Craig Sager. While rocking one of the special Sager-esque jerseys that the Tortugas would sport that night, Carter sent his pitch right down the pipe.
