How did Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and wife Heather celebrate Mother’s Day? With a little baseball. In the house.
Wiffle ball, to be precise, to minimize damage. Derek staked out a spot at the door. Heather picked up a bat and stood down the hallway.
In one of a handful of clips he posted on Twitter, one of the pitches by the former Fresno State football star dives down and in. A nasty curve (reminder: with a wiffle ball).
In another, Carr throws a high fastball that Heather swings at and misses. But then she gets all of another fastball.
Carr tagged four major league ballclubs on one of the posts. That got the attention of the A’s, who invited him to throw some batting practice.
