The White House coronavirus task force member told the Wall Street Journal that he “completely destroyed” his arm while playing catch for the first time in decades a couple days before taking the mound at Nationals Park for Opening Day.
“My arm was hanging down around my shoes,” said the 79-year-old Brooklyn-born Nationals fan.
With the Nationals, Yankees and all of baseball watching, a masked Fauci bounced the first pitch of the 2020 MLB season off the grass, way wide of home plate.
“Instead of doing my normal motion of just lobbing the ball, which would’ve been the best thing to do, I thought, ‘Oh, baby, I better put a lot of different oomph into it,’” Fauci said. “And I did. And you saw what happened.”
