USA gymnast Simone Biles was invited to throw out the first pitch before Game 2 of the World Series at Minute Maid Park on Wednesday night, as the Astros were looking for a spectacle to fire up the fans.
The team, after all, mounted a late comeback in Game 1, but came up just short in the 5-4 loss. As such, they looked to Biles to dazzle fans before Game 2, and that’s exactly what she did.
Biles made her way out to the mound, then did a sick backflip with a twist, before she hurled the ball toward the plate.
That’s not the usual ceremonial pitch we’re used to seeing, but it was awesome nonetheless.
