Isner threw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium Tuesday night prior to the Mariners-Yankees game. He also made an appearance at on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Monday to read a Top-10 list detailing the things he was thinking during the first-round match at Wimbledon, which lasted 11 hours and five minutes and was completed over three days.

Isner beat Nicolas Mahut, 70-68, in the fifth set to seal the win and complete the longest match in tennis history.

He received a warm ovation from the crowd at Yankee Stadium before and after throwing out the first pitch.
