If the struggling Minnesota Twins are looking for some pitching help, maybe they should call Bruce Boudreau.

The new Minnesota Wild coach threw out the first pitch prior to the game Thursday between the Twins and the Toronto Blue Jays at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Boudreau, wearing a No. 16 jersey with his name on the back, looked solid in warmups and fired a left-handed strike to Twins manager Paul Molitor.

"I thought they said you couldn't throw," Molitor said as he handed Boudreau the ball.

"I'm shocked that it went over the plate," replied a smiling Boudreau, who was hired by the Wild on May 7.
