John Bledsoe's in the insurance business, so maybe he can answer this: Can you take out a disaster policy on a first pitch? Invited to handle the ceremonial duties before a recent Stetson University game, Bledsoe apparently decided to get some tutoring from the dad in that Volkswagen Passat commercial. Though he claims he took 20 warmup tosses, Bledsoe was tripped up by the incline of the mound. His chutzpah didn't help either, as he asked friends, "You want safe or you want heat?" before taking the field. "I would love to say it was staged," said the new candidate for Worst First Pitch Hall of Fame, "but I couldn't fake it that good."
