On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday, the host was looking to avoid going viral for all the wrong reasons after he was invited to throw out a ceremonial first pitch at a New York Yankees game.

With the goal of delivering a perfect strike down the middle, Fallon enlisted the help of one of the greatest Major League Baseball pitchers of all time, hall-of-famer Mariano Rivera.

After a brief yet hilarious training session, it came time for Fallon’s moment of truth. With Rivera looking on for support, Fallon delivered a rather high and outside pitch where the catcher had to stand and jump to make the catch. And while it most definitely wasn’t a strike, the fact that it was caught is a pretty sure sign that Fallon won’t be going viral.
