When a Ceremonial 1st Pitch Leads to a Wrestling Match


((ht: @cut4))

I don't know if any of you have seen some of the things that qualify as "First Pitch" material in overseas baseball leagues...but this may be the funniest.

I say that knowing full well the Korean Baseball League had someone dressed up as a character from "The Ring" horror movie series throw out a pitch a few years ago.

Check out what happened the other night to kick off a Nippon Professional Baseball League game featuring the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters who I guess really lived up to their nicknames.

It starts innocently enough as someone dressed up as a Professional Wrestler (I think, not positive)....goes out to throw the ceremonial pitch and throws it behind the Fighters Mascot....

I'm so confused....

I'm not sure what was better--the action on the field or the play-by-play (watch the video with audio up).....

So yeah, instead of some angry opinion rant today---I leave you with that image burned into your brains....

You are welcome....
