    Let's make sure Braxton gets drafted by the Bengals so we can see this happen, like, once a week.

    Leave it to Braxton Miller to make throwing out the first pitch at a baseball game even more fun than it would normally be. Typically, a celebrity guest who makes an appearance to toss out a ceremonial first pitch will step out wearing the jersey of the team playing with their own name on the back, wave for the crowd, proceed to gently toss a ball high and away (unless you're Ronald Reagan, then you throw two pitches) and move on. Braxton chose to make his pitch a little more fun, however.

    Let's run down the list of things that made this so awesome.

    -On the way out to the mound, Miller pulled off a spin move. You know, kinda like this one.

    -He threw the pitch while Hang On Sloopy played throughout the stadium.

    -He brought his son out with him.

    -Before the pitch, he wore a signed Pete Rose jersey.

    -He proceeded to play catch afterwards with one of the only players in baseball who can probably match his athleticism, in Billy Hamilton.

    -He did this all while wearing a cabana hat.

    -And most importantly, we actually got to watch Braxton Miller throw a ball for just the second time since 2013.
