Watch: Stephen Curry wows Japan with impressive first pitch

Golden State Warriors All-Star guard Steph Curry has some heat.

Watch below as Curry throws out the first pitch at the game between the Tokyo Giants and Yakult Swallows in Japan on Tuesday night.

Curry’s pitch was a very solid one, but he’s not likely to leave his day job as an NBA superstar to pursue a career in baseball.


At the age of 30, Curry feels as though he is currently at his peak as a [basketball] player, and he wants to extend that peak for as long as he can.

“I feel like I’m at my peak as a player and I want to stay on that level for as long as I can,” Curry said, via ESPN.”I’m gonna keep pushing myself in that direction.”

Curry is clearly enjoying the success that he is experiencing in the Bay Area, and he recently stated that he hopes to play his entire career in a Warriors jersey.

“I love the Bay Area, man,” Curry said on a recent appearance on the Bill Simmons podcast, via Yahoo Sports. “The only reason I go home [to the Charlotte area] now is if my sister’s getting married or to go play the Hornets for that one game, so I haven’t really been back much. I haven’t put my mind there.”

When asked by Simmons if he wants to be a Warrior for the rest of his career, Curry didn’t beat around the bush.

“For sure I do,” Curry said. “This is home. This is where I want to be, for obvious reasons.”

After winning three titles and two MVP awards with the Warriors, it seems pretty obvious why Curry would want to stay put.
