Tom Brady throws out horrendous pitch at Boston Red Sox game

He may be just a few months removed from securing his place in the argument for the greatest of all time, but Tom Brady has shown that there is something that he can't do.

Brady led the New England Patriots to a fourth Super Bowl championship just over two months ago and reached a significant personal landmark.

Winning his fourth title as a quarterback, Brady equalled the career achievement of his childhood hero and San Francisco 49ers legendary quarterback Joe Montana.

The Patriots managed to overcome the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in what has since been voted as the greatest game of all time on

It has been relatively downhill from there however as the team have now lost several high profile players including Darrelle Revis, Shane Vereen and Vince Wilfork.

Nevertheless, the Patriots are ready to defend their Super Bowl title this year and Brady and his team will now be getting ready to start their off-season preparations.

Before then though, Brady attended the Boston Red Sox's home opener against the Washington Nationals on Monday to throw the ceremonial first pitch.

Brady may have thrown the winning touchdown in Super Bowl XLIX but his first pitch today is certainly one to forget.

Brady threw a grounder into the batters box and showed that what he is able to do on a football field clearly doesn't translate to the baseball field.

Prior to making his first pitch on the mound, Brady carried out one of the Patriots Super Bowl trophies along with head coach Bill Belichick and president Jonathan Kraft.

Despite the poor through from Brady to open the new season at Fenway Park, the Red Sox managed to pull off a 9-4 victory over the Nationals.

Boston are now 5-2 in the season and recovered well after Sunday's heavy defeat to the New York Yankees.

Back to the big one?

There are large questions over the Patriots Super Bowl credentials for next year and rightly so after they have lost a lot of big names.

The offense that carried them to victory in Arizona last year has been largely untouched but their defense has taken a big blow.

They managed to secure the services of Devin McCourty but lost Wilfork and their starting cornerback duo from the Super Bowl in Brandon Browner and Darrelle Revis.
