Ceremonial first pitches are rarely noteworthy. And when they are, it’s usually because of extreme mishap or blunder or because someone really significant is on the mound.
But a little-known Korean gymnast name Shin Soo-ji tossed an awfully noteworthy first pitch on Friday in the Doosan Bears-Samsung Lions Korean Baseball Organization game.
We give it a perfect 10.
Sadly, Shin Soo-ji’s hip rotation appears quite a bit stronger than the Arizona Diamondbacks’ starting rotation.
