Throwing the ceremonial first pitch in a baseball game is a cherished time honored tradition. Many famous celebrities, from Hall of Famers to US presidents and more prominent personalities, have all performed the task in America’s favorite pastime.
What makes this easy-looking job difficult is the fact that you have to throw the ball 60 feet and 6 inches away. Pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen attempted it and failed miserably, while basketball legend Charles Barkley missed the mark. With that in mind, the thought of a perfect pitch gives satisfaction to the pitcher, some even are contented if the catcher can at least get a hold of the ball.
The latest offering of a chance to throw out the first pitch is Shin Soo-ji, a former South Korean national team rhythmic gymnast. Her performance and pitch was truly inspirational to all gymnast! The unbelievable display occurred during a match between the Doosan Bears and Samsung Lions at Jamsil Stadium in South Korea where she didn’t just throw the ball, she gracefully performed an amazing stunt.
