In fairness, it must be nerve racking standing in the middle of a major league stadium with all those cardboard cutouts staring you down.

Here’s the 60 foot gold standard of first pitches at game 3 of the 2001 World Series in Yankee Stadium. It turned out to be the last time the country was united.
