First pitch turns into a confusing yoga striptease

- July 9th, 2014


There was an unwritten promise in our newsroom that we’d stop blogging about horrible first pitches at baseball games.

However, I simply cannot ignore what has to be the most uncomfortable first pitch in the history of modern baseball.

This pitch comes straight from the Taiwanese baseball league, and right before what had to be a steamy affair between the Lamigo Monkeys and Brother Elephants (Phil Collins is all over writing that team a theme song).

What you are about to see may or may not be common behaviour for a first pitch in Taiwan.

What becomes clear almost instantly is that this young woman isn’t too interested in throwing the ball.

While it lays on the mound, she decides to pull off some suggestive yoga moves before finally picking the ball up and ripping off her top.

At some point after all the stretching and winking at the camera, she actually throws the ball to the catcher. And then jumps on the guy to maul him.

As outrageous as this may have been, don’t be surprised if MLB catchers start pushing to be involved in first pitches like this one.

(Thanks to Deadspin for bringing this video to our attention.)
