CSNCalifornia.comALAMEDA -- Richard Seymour has won Super Bowls. He's been to the Pro Bowl and been named All-Pro. He's probably on his way to Canton.Which is all a good thing since, well, let the Raiders defensive tackle tell the tale of his experience in throwing out a ceremonial first pitch prior to the A's game against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night."I bounced it," he said with a smile and shake of his head. "I double-bounced it. It was bad. It showed me I chose the right profession."Seymour, it should be noted, threw his pitch from the top of the mound, rather than the more practical, and safer, front of the mound.He also spoke to the A's Green Stampede Homework Club, a study group for at-risk students ages 11-15 about leadership.-30-
