Johnny Manziel is still having the best offseason of all time. After nearly every move he makes being well-documented over the last few months, he will now be able to cross off throwing a ceremonial first pitch from his bucket list.
According to the Texas Rangers' Executive Vice President of Communications, John Blake, (h/t College Football Talk), Manziel will be the first to take the mound next Sunday when the Rangers host the Los Angeles Angels.

Oh, and just in case you are wondering, the game will be televised by ESPN, so be prepared to see quite a bit of the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and hear all about how awesome he is. That's right, if you thought the start of baseball season was going to stop the Manziel mania, you've got another thing coming.
Manziel has been in the news more than updates on Lil Wayne and those seizures he was having. From flashing a large sum of money, to recently meeting basketball superstar LeBron James, Manziel is having a blast these days. This also won't be his first sporting event, as he was caught sitting courtside at NBA games, where he was on the television at times more than the actual players themselves.
So, what type of ball is Manziel going to throw across the plate? Is it going to be a strike right down the middle, or is it going to be a ball that we can add to the list of this video?
Don't bet on it. Manziel has yet to show a hole in his game, and he may actually be more comfortable on the baseball diamond than any gridiron he played last year.
In a report provided by Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle, players have said that football may in fact be the quarterback’s third-best sport, as many believe he is better at both golf and baseball. Some say that if he wasn't throwing touchdowns, he would have little trouble starting for the Aggies baseball team.
Manziel recently announced that he was stepping away from the Twitter world because it was becoming a little too much. He never said he would stop living life to the fullest and taking advantage of every opportunity to be in the spotlight.
We all have wanted to have a chance to throw a baseball off of a professional baseball mound.
Manziel proves yet again why he is cooler than us all.
