Ceremonial pitches can go one of two ways. Luckily for Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, he’ll have something to brag about when he returns to the Chiefs’ facility. 

The veteran coach had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at Kauffman Stadium on Thursday for the Royals’ home opener against the Minnesota Twins.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who owns a 1% stake in the MLB team, took to X to ask how his coach had fared, but thankfully, Reid had thrown a pitch worth a highlight reel. 

Despite losing 4-1 to the Twins, the Royals are hoping that some of Reid’s dynasty luck will rub off on their season.

The Chiefs won back-to-back Super Bowls with a win over the San Francisco 49ers last month. It marked their third Super Bowl in just five seasons and fourth in franchise history. But even with such success under his tenure, Reid isn’t ready to call it a dynasty. 

“It’s up to you guys to do the dynasty thing,” Reid told reporters with a smile during the NFL owners meetings this week.

“I’m back to training camp and the meat and potatoes of the thing, and so that’s where I go. Just make sure the guys come back in shape and we’re ready to roll. That’s the part that we’ll control there, and make sure the guys build a nice foundation up at training camp.”

“Every year in the NFL is a new year,” he continued. “Every team is a different team, and the guys know how I go with that – don’t get caught up in too much of the fluff. Put another Tommy Bahama shirt on, and let’s go.”
