Tom Hanks throws a touch of comedy in, Wilson compliments Castaway’s volleyball as he throws the ceremonial first pitch at the Cleveland Guardians home opener.

When he was announced to the home crowd on Friday at Progressive Field, the two-time Oscar winner came to walk the field with the bloody volleyball that Hanks' co-star was in the 2000 survival film.

Not long after, after putting Wilson on the ground, volleyball began to roll off the mound, leaving many of the broadcasters and broadcasters amazed at the question of whether this was a staged comedy.

Hanks, a tall Cleveland fan, waved one hand to the audience as he secured the famous volleyball in the other as he slowly walked to the front of the mound.

Upon arrival, actor Wilson, who along with the bloodmark also had a 'C' for Cleveland on it, landed on the ground and grabbed the nearby baseball for his throw. When Hanks rubbed the baseball down for this throw, Wilson began to falter and then fell off the mound onto the green field.

'There goes Wilson,' said a broadcaster as the ball suddenly rolled about 10 feet to the right of the frame.

'It's windy today,' replied the other broadcaster as Hanks jogged back into place.

Prepared: Hanks placed Wilson on the mound for his pitch

Hanks went back into his routine, but Wilson walked away again, this time rolling about 30 feet right off the mound, before running back at Hanks’ feet. It is at this point that people become suspicious.

“This needs to be staged,” a broadcaster explained, adding: “Wilson has a mind of his own.”

As the volleyball went around, he added, 'Maybe it was remotely controlled,' which his partner asked to reply, 'It should be.'

The camera then pulled close to Wilson and showed that the ball was swinging randomly from side to side, all but proving that this was a remote controlled device.

Eventually, Hanks just stepped forward and threw the ceremonial pitch to Larry Doby Jr., son of former Cleveland Indians star, all while Wilson walked in front of him.

While Hanks stood a few feet in front of the rubber, he was able to make a pretty good throw a few yards from the goal of the catcher on the home plate.
