Korean Baseball Team Shoots a Fireball for First Pitch

There are first pitches in baseball, and there are Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) first pitches.

We’ve seen South Korean gymnasts and Taekwondo athletes do their thing. So how about a fireball from the top of the centerfield scoreboard this time around, courtesy of the KT Wiz?

Hat tip to Dan @MyKBO for always showing us the best and weirdest of Korean baseball.

Apparently, there is also a superstition among Korean baseball fans that when a male celebrity throws a first pitch during an important game, the home team loses. That explains the number of female celebrities tossing out the first pitch—it’s more than just about the outfit. #baseballreasons
