NESN’s Tom Caron Has One ‘Eck’ of a Gisele Story
Tom Caron's story about meeting Gisele Bundchen at Fenway is a riot. It involves Dennis Eckersley giving her advice on how to throw a ceremonial first pitch.
Years before she ever met Tom Brady, Gisele was at Fenway being interviewed by NESN and she was nervous about throwing out the ceremonial first pitch of the game.
Hall of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley instructed her to aim high as the downward motion of pitching from the mound can cause the ball to short hop the plate.
When the crucial time came, Gisele just about launched the ball into the upper deck.
The next day, The Today Show was teasing her about her pitch and she threw 'Eck' right under the bus with the following classic quote.
"I don't know, some old guy told me to throw it high." - Gisele Bundchen referencing Dennis Eckersley
I tell ya. Over 2400 strikeouts, almost 200 career wins and nearly 400 career saves and he's just 'some old guy'. No respect at all!
