Los Angeles Chargers rookie safety Derwin James better stick to football.
Angels outfielder Chris Young scooped up James' offering, with the latter doing his best to keep a smile on his face.
"It was farther than I thought," the 21-year-old James said.
James did get the business from the rest of the Chargers' rookie draft class, which surrounded him on the mound. He also took a hit on Twitter as Chargers All-Pro cornerback Casey Hayward took issue with his attempt.
"You are trash first pitch didn't make it!!!!" Hayward wrote.

James was Florida State's lone All-Atlantic Coast Conference First Team selection last season after being the Seminoles' second-leading tackler with 84 stops. He also had two interceptions and one sack.
