Today, Mayor de Blasio faces a critical test: Will he be able to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at today's Mets home opener without embarrassing himself? He Tweeted this photograph (above) at Mets starter Dillon Gee, "Hey @DillonGee35 - how's my form? #letsdothis #GoMets cc: @JoeandEvan"

De Blasio will be heading to Citi Field this morning to get ready for the Mets game against the Nationals—he has a media availability at 11:45 a.m. and then the first pitch is at 1:06 p.m. (though on de Blasio time, it'll probably be around 1:22 p.m.). He'll watch at least some of the game.
