“It’s probably the most nervous I’m ever going to be,” admitted Sahith Theegala.His apprehension rivals that of his first tee shot at his debut Masters Tournament last year and the pressure-packed putt he faced to secure his PGA TOUR card in late 2021.

Adding to the challenge, Sahith Theegala disclosed that he has never played baseball before, not even attempting it once.

“I’m going to be nervous,” he confessed. “My caddie, Carl, bought a couple of mitts and a ball last night at Dick’s (Sporting Goods), so we’re going to my gym at home and get some shots up, loosen my shoulder with some basketball … and 55 or 60 feet, I’m going to cheat all the way to the front of the mound. Whatever it is, 55 feet, it’s a long way. If anything, I’m going to sail it. I will not put it in the dirt. I hope I can keep that promise. …

“I have long arms so I feel like at least I can throw with some power,” he added, “but my accuracy’s going to be very suspicious. We’ll see if my very average athletic ability can pull through for me one time. But no experience. I’ve played catch like three times in college just like soft tossing a baseball. That’s about it. I’ve tried to hit baseballs off a tee and it’s just not good.”
