Johnny Manziel's epic night at San Diego's Petco Park.

The latest installment of "Johnny Manziel's life is just better than yours sees the Heisman-winning Texas A&M quarterback at San Diego's Petco Park, where he threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the San Diego Padres' home game against the Washington Nationals the game. While this may be a once-in-a-lifetime moment for some, this is the second time this season Manziel has performed this duty. He threw out the first pitch at a Texas Rangers game in April.

Before the game Manziel was able to get a little batting practice in. During which, he did the most Johnny Football thing possible and hit a home run. And yes, that's a wooden bat he's using, and not an aluminum baseball dinger bat.

Manziel also hung out with the Nats' manager Davey Johnson, himself a former Aggie baseball player.

If that wasn't bad enough for the haters, Manziel's used the first pitch to reenact the now-legendary "bobbled" touchdown play in the Aggies' win over Alabama last November.

This would probably be called a balk in a real baseball game. But who cares?

And yes, haters, Manziel is twitter buds with Bryce Harper. Deal with it.
