This is certainly one of the most memorable first pitches we’ve ever seen.
Opening Day is always exciting for fans of America’s National Sport… but this first pitch wasn’t even in the good ol’ U.S. of A.
The first pitch that figure skater Kim Ye-lim threw out before the start of the SSG Landers game in South Korea’s KBO League was both graceful and athletic.
Not only did she do an off-ice triple salchow, she then stuck the landing and fired the ball right into the strike zone.
South Korean figure skater Kim Ye-Lim had one of the wildest first pitches you’ll ever see

That was so much better than Washington Nationals “superfan” Dr. Anthony Fauci did when he threw out the first pitch back in 2020.
Here’s a reminder of that trainwreck…

That was embarrassing.
Ye-lim is a rising star in South Korea’s figure skating scene.
At just 19 years-old, Ye-lim is already one of South Korea’s best figure skaters. She finished ninth in the women’s single skating standings at the Beijing Olympics, and second among South Korean figure skaters just behind You Young, who finished sixth.
Olympians have been known to show off a bit when throwing out first pitches, like when Simone Biles did a flip before throwing out a first pitch in the 2019 World Series.

But hey, if that doesn’t work out, maybe she should consider a career in baseball…
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
