The Final Five throws creative Opening Pitches

If you thought Laurie Hernandez was fabulous in Rio, you haven’t seen anything yet.

Hernandez pitched the opening ball for the New York Mets when they faced the Washington Nationals on September 3rd.

That same day Madison Kocian pitched the opening ball for the Rangers/Astros game! While Hernadez was throwing aerials, Kocian was pulling off handstands before the pitch!


Who threw it better?
