Video: Jesuit’s Festus Ezeli - now an NBA champion - throws out first pitch at Oakland A’s game

Festus Ezeli is now an NBA champion. But there was a time when he was just a 6-foot-6 student at Jesuit High School and not good enough to play on the Marauders’ basketball team. And he wanted to be a doctor.

With that backdrop, the man from Nigeria who became a first-round draft pick out of Vanderbilt tossed out the first pitch in the Oakland A’s game this holiday weekend.
