Jamaican Gymnast Toni-Ann Williams Attempts Cartwheel First Pitch, Fails Miserably (GIF)
Jamaican gymnast Toni-Ann Williams may have been the first from her nation to compete in the Olympics in gymnastics, but as this video shows, that doesn’t really mean she’s qualified to throw out the first pitch at this Oakland A’s game.

Here’s the play:

Harsh words from the MLB.
Congrats goes out to the catcher for making that heroic snag.
