Korean Baseball First Pitch: Literally a Ball of Fire Shot From Center Field (Video)

korean baseball first pitch literally a ball of fire

Any time you see the words “Korean baseball first pitch,” you know you’re in for a treat. However, while the KBO has certainly given us some pretty interesting first pitches over the years, the one you’re about to see today trumps them all.

This week, the KT Wiz in Suwon, South Korea, made their official debut in the Korean Baseball Organization, so they didn’t want to just run out some hot K-Pop singer to throw the first pitch like they normally do. They wanted to pull out all the stops to make their debut as memorable as possible.

That’s why, for the ceremonial first pitch, they busted out the pyrotechnics and literally shot a ball of fire across home plate…from center field.

Take a look:

And you thought 50 Cent was good.

Good luck in the KBO, guys. Hopefully the flashy introduction doesn’t leave fans bored when they actually have to sit down and watch what is essentially minor league baseball.
