This South Korean Gymnast Cutie Throws The Most Impressive First Pitch You’ll Ever See

I think we all can agree that first pitches are usually God awful. Even the people you’d expect to have a cannon usually end up dribbling one before the plate or sailing one into the dugout (See: Paul Pierce, Charles Barkley)

On the other end of the spectrum is rhythmic gymnast Shin Soo-ji. The South Korean not only threw a respectable pitch before Sunday’s Nexen Heroes-Doosan Bears game, but did so after performing a mind-blowing gymnast thingy (not even going to try to describe it.)


She upped her game since 2013 when she tossed out this impressive pitch:

Even fellow gymast and America’s own McKayla Maroney was impressed.

Ok, maybe not so much.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
