There has hardly been a first-year quarterback invited for the ceremonial first pitch of MLB, but there also hasn’t been a CJ Stroud in the NFL before. Leading the Houston Texans to the playoffs’ conference title game, while holding the AFC North title, Stroud has become a sensation in the sports industry.

Not just that, he was the first rookie ever to be included in the NFL MVP list and made the Texans a real Super Bowl contender. As the Rookie of the Year awaits the upcoming season, he seems to be reaping the reward of his success.

The star quarterback was invited to throw the ceremonial first pitch to kick-start the season for his home MLB team, the Houston Astros against the Atlanta Braves at Minute Maid Park. Chandler Rome of The Athletic reported the news first on his X handle.

Stroud, who is known for his impressive arm strength and accuracy, threw a perfect strike to the pitcher. The whole stadium cheered altogether as they celebrated the quarterback for keeping up the tradition of the Astros’ impressive first pitches.

Interestingly, this wasn’t Stroud’s first time at Minute Maid Park. Last fall, he was invited alongside fellow rookie defensive standout Will Anderson Jr. to deliver the ‘Play Ball’ announcement for Game 2 of the American League Championship Series between the Houston and the Texas Rangers.

Fans react to CJ Stroud’s perfect strike

After Andy Reid, Stroud is another NFL celebrity to throw the perfect strike at the first pitch. Although the Astros couldn’t succeed with a victory, fans suggested Stroud should stay on the mound. There have been many perfect pitches, but Houston fans celebrated Stroud’s most significantly.

One fan wrote, “The arm is golden,” highlighting Stroud as an all-rounded athlete because of his amazing arm strength. While another wrote, “Cj said I’m not fkin my throw up. Throw this baseball like a football!  Dedication.” Fans expressed their respect for the star quarterback, saying he threw the ball with such perfection despite it not being his professional sport. Here are some of the fan reactions:

Some even referred to Stroud as the Greatest of All Time. Well, the way the young quarterback making his way up among the top quarterbacks of the league, he would become No. 1.
