Alabama football coach Nick Saban definitely picked the right sport.

Last year's Iron Bowl on the gridiron was an instant classic, but Saban and the Crimson Tide ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard.

Saban probably isn't too fond of Auburn right now, but he renewed the rivalry by throwing out the first pitch before the Crimson Tide and the Tigers squared off on Friday at Sewell-Thomas Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Although his pitch made it to the catcher, he could use some work on his accuracy.
