SEOUL, South Korea - A viral video showing a South Korean rhythmic gymnast slinging a one-legged first pitch at a baseball game is a hit -- racking up more than 9 million views.
The amazing feat took place last week before a game between the Doosan Bears and the Samsung Lions in Seoul, South Korea.
Gymnast Shin Soo-Ji rotated her entire body on one leg to throw the pitch, which amazed broadcasters, players and the crowd alike. The pitch sailed into the glove of the catcher at home plate, although it looked slightly off-center.
