In just a few weeks, Gradey Dick of the Toronto Raptors may prove himself as one of the best rookies in the league.
But until then, he is just enjoying his summer vacation in the days before training camp.
On Wednesday night, Dick had some fun by tossing out the first pitch at the Toronto Blue Jays game, which was then shared online in a video from the Blue Jays and ClutchPoints.
Dick did a pretty good job with the pitch and seemed to have fun.
What will his first season in the league be like?

He was the 13th overall pick in the recent NBA Draft and Raptors fans are expecting a lot from him.
The guard comes to the Raptors at a very interesting time.
With the loss of Fred VanVleet and their former coach, Nick Nurse, the team is in flux and trying to find a new identity.
Will Dick be part of a new generation for the Raptors?
He has gained a lot of interest from fans of Toronto – and other teams throughout the league.
In fact, the Portland Trail Blazers were allegedly intrigued by him when they were negotiating with the Raptors regarding Damian Lillard.
Of course, that deal never came together and Lillard ended up moving to the Milwaukee Bucks.
But it’s clear that Dick is drumming up a lot of interest.
Since the departures of Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry, Raptors fans have been eager for more players like the rookie.
If he delivers on his potential, he could make his first year with the Raptors a very special one.
