Thierry Henry throws first pitch before New York Mets game

Thierry Henry threw out the first pitch at Citi Field with characteristic nonchalance.

With Barcelona still in the United States on their preseason jaunt, Thierry Henry fulfilled his ambassadorial duty by representing the club at the MLB game between New York Mets and Oakland Athletics on Sunday.

Henry attended the game at Citi Field alongside fellow Barca alumni Juliano Belletti, who were both presented with their very own personalised Mets jerseys to kick things off.

The Frenchman was then invited to toss out the ceremonial first pitch, which he did with characteristic nonchalance.

Decent enough pitch from Henry, but nowhere near on par with Angel Di Maria's huge arm, as demonstrated at Marlin Park in Miami last week.

Unfortunately, their special guests from Catalonia weren't enough to inspire the Mets to victory, as the home side fell to a 3-2 defeat.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
