It appears Chris Paul can handle more than just a basketball.

The newly acquired Houston Rockets point guard stepped to the mound at Minute Maid Park before the Astros hosted the Minnesota Twins on Friday and delivered a pretty accurate first pitch down the pipe prior to the game's start.

Paul, a nine-time NBA All-Star, will join James Harden and Co. in their pursuit of the franchise's first championship since 1995.
