Shaka Smart throws out first pitch, sings at Cubs game

We’re a week into the month of May and VCU basketball is still on national TV.

Just days after visiting the White House, Shaka Smart headed back to the city that hosted the coming out party of this seasons surprising Final 4 squad, this time on a different field of play as he threw out the first pitch at a special Mothers Day Cubs game.

Wearing a #91 Cubs jersey, Smart’s pitch was a confirmed strike.

The pitch was thrown to current Cubbie and former VCU standout, Sean Marshall.

The second-year head coach followed up that performance seven innings later by singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”.
