Colin Kaepernick first pitch: Video, GIF and just general entertainment value

USA TODAY Sports

We've got GIFs and video of 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's first pitch at Friday's Giants-Marlins game.

Well, Russell Wilson, how 'bout them apples? A few weeks after Russell Wilson hit 75 mph on the Seattle Mariners radar gun, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took it up a notch, hitting 87 mph on his first pitch to Giants relief pitcher Sergio Romo. I can actually confirm that number thanks to a friend of mine who works with the Giants scoreboard crew.

Kap threw out the first pitch at Friday's Giants-Marlins game, and I have to imagine he set a record for first pitch speed. The folks at MLB.com were kind enough to post some embeddable video of the first pitch. Hopefully the NFL will some day join MLB in providing embeddable video.

And of course, we also have a GIF of the first pitch, courtesy of @SBNationGIF:

If you're looking for one last angle on the pitch, friend of the site Bay Area Sports Guy put together this video:

Just one more chance for Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers to compete with Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks, right?
