Ceremonial first pitches are not very memorable, but at a game in South Korea, it left everyone’s mind bent.
Rhythmic gymnast Soo-ji Shin threw out the first pitch before the Doosan Bears played the Samsung Lions, and it was acrobatic to say the least.
Shin delivered the pitch flipping her body around while standing on one leg. The ball wasn’t a strike but she reached the plate and left fans and players in the dugout mesmerized by what they just saw.
Shin Soo-ji’s First Pitch
The pitch is reminiscent of a Cirque du Soleil performer two years ago before a San Diego Padres game in which he did a front flip before firing the ball. Shin remained on the ground, but it’s going to be tough for someone to top her throw.
