LOS ANGELES (AP) — USC basketball star JuJu Watkins had a different kind of ball in his hand at Dodger Stadium. She threw out a ceremonial first pitch before the Freeway Series matchup between the Los Angeles Angels and the Dodgers. Watkins says she’s the most nervous she’s ever been since basketball comes easy to her, but not baseball, even though she’s a Dodgers fan growing up in Los Angeles. But she coolly threw a strike from the top of the mound to pitcher Gavin Stone, who was behind the plate. As a freshman, Watkins led Southern California to its best season in years. The Trojans won the Pac-12 championship and fell one win short of reaching the Final Four.
