Olympic gold medalist Suni Lee threw the ceremonial first pitch at the Minnesota Twins game, and she flipped!
The 19-year-old gymnast showed off her skills on the mound Friday night for the Blue Jays-Twins game at Target Field in Minneapolis and enthralled the crowd when she flipped off the mound before throwing the pitch. Lee wore a customized Twins jersey, denim shorts and white kicks for the occasion.
The crowd really enjoyed the performance, as Lee’s flip was followed by an audible “oooh”. After throwing out the pitch, Lee threw his arms into the air before meeting the twins’ pitcher Caleb Thielbar and team mascot, CT Baer, for a photo.
Major League Baseball’s verified Twitter account was still affected by Saturday’s performance. “We are still flipping on @sunisalee_’s first pitch last night,” the account tweeted.
The team’s Twitter account also tweeted the picture and wrote, “A beautiful flipping for a good first pitch by Sunisli_!!!”
Lee, later from St. Paul, Minnesota reacted“Thanks to @twins for such an honor of throwing out the first pitch.”
