Olympic Gymnast Flips a Pitch
There's no doubt Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Laurie Hernandez can flip, but can she flip and pitch the ball over home plate?
Hernandez, a New Jersey native, threw out the first pitch at the New York Mets game on Saturday. Her wind-up was flawless—she jumped off the mound and did an aerial cartwheel, then she threw the ball to the pitcher. While it had the distance , it was a little off the mark. Hernandez then flashed a big smile to the crowd.
Hernandez was part of the gold-medal U.S. gymnastics team. She also earned an individual silver medal on the balance beam.
