I Bet You’ve Never Seen A First Pitch Like This

In major league baseball stadiums all over the United States [and Toronto in Canada] they will have an honorary person throw out “the first pitch.”   At Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, they had numerous people throw out the first pitch on Monday, in celebration of America’s Independence Day.  They had a  couple of our great heroes serving in the military throw out the first pitch.  And then had an Olympic hopeful, a world champion women’s artistic gymnast from Spring, Texas [just outside of Houston], Simone Biles also throw out the first pitch. 

Gold Medalist and Three Time World Champion Simone Biles

Minute Maid Park home of the 2016 World Series Champion Houston Astros  🙂

When you see how she threw it, or I should say how she wound up to throw it, you will see something I bet you have never seen before in all of the first pitches ever thrown.  

Simone Biles throwing out the first pitch at Minute Maid Park on Monday, July 4, 2016:

That was Astros on the field reporter, Julia Morales, interviewing Simone Biles. 

Alan Ashby former Houston Astros catcher and current TV broadcaster for the Astros, said jokingly, it was good there weren’t runners on base, she would have been called for a balk. 

Oh, and the most important news:  The Astros defeated the Seattle Mariners 2-1.
