Johnny Manziel was supposed to throw the ceremonial first pitch in the Cleveland Indians' game against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday. 

Unfortunately, a two-hour rain delay canceled the ceremonial first pitch, per MLB.com's Alec Shirkey:  

"Not even the rain was able to quell Johnny Manziel mania. 

"'We can't not have the game today, Johnny's throwing out the first pitch,' one Indians player shouted across the clubhouse. 

"Manziel -- the first well-known NFL first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns and former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback at Texas A&M -- was scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch during the Tribe's Wednesday night contest with the Red Sox. 

"After a rain delay of nearly two hours at Progressive Field, the first pitch was canceled, and Johnny Football never picked up a baseball

"But that didn't keep Tribe fans from expressing their zeal for Manziel. Both he and fellow Browns first-round pick Justin Gilbert were introduced to the crowd about 30 minutes before the game, and those in the stands responded with cheers and chants of 'Johnny.'

"Manziel and Gilbert also toured the clubhouse and batting cages, meeting several members of the Tribe along the way. Right-hander Josh Tomlin gave both football players tips on their pitching. 

"The young Browns quarterback, however, is no stranger to the baseball diamond. He was a middle infielder for his high school team and would have played in college had he not chosen to focus on football. He even followed the Tribe in his younger days. 

"'The Indians were always our team growing up,' Manziel told the team, 'and when I moved to Kerrville (Texas) in middle school, that was our team again.'

"As for the Indians players, several of them were excited to welcome a fellow athlete who has excelled in his respective sport. Outfielder David Murphy, who saw Manziel throw out the first pitch at the Rangers' home opener last season, said he was looking forward to meeting him before the game. 

"'Everybody knows who he is, everybody knows what he's done. It's always cool when somebody shows up to throw out the first pitch,' Murphy said. 'More than anything, just welcome him to the city of Cleveland, get to know him.'" 

In a separate development, a hoax lawsuit against Manziel was dismissed by a Florida judge on Wednesday, according to TMZ. 

"Good news for Johnny Manziel...and his penis...a Florida judge has just THROWN OUT the $25 MILLION hoax lawsuit filed against him...and ripped the dumb--- who filed it in the first place. 

"You know the lawsuit...some wannabe prankster filed actual, legal documents in District Court in Florida posing as HLN host Samantha Schacher...when, in fact, the prankster is a man. 

"In the bogus lawsuit, the hoaxster claimed the NFL star bombarded 'her' with naked selfied and X-rated videos...including a clip where he was 'jingling' his penis to the tune of 'It's a Small World.' 

"Well, it didn't take long for a judge to call B.S...and last week, Judge Steven D. Merryday dismissed the suit...calling it 'immaterial, impertinent and scandalous.'"

The Browns drafted Manziel 22nd overall in the 2014 NFL Draft.
