There are sliders and knuckleballs, curve balls and screw balls, but Shin Soo Ji introduced a new twist to the game of baseball when she contorted herself into enough twists for a tornado when she threw the first pitch in South Korean baseball this season.

Shin Soo-Ji doesn’t list baseball player on her athletic resume, but she sure can pitch. The South Korean gymnast known for leaving sports fans in a trance with her rhythmic gymnastics, threw out the first pitch at a baseball game between the Doosan Bears and the Samsung Lions in Seoul, South Korea. The sexy and shapely Shin Soo-Ji didn’t just throw a pitch, she put herself completely into it.

Shin Soo-Ji twisted her elastic body, spun herself around in a circle, kicked a her leg over her head, did a flip in the middle of her wind-up and then let fly with a perfect pitch to home plate. Seasoned baseball players were amazed. The announcers were stunned and the internet is completely abuzz

Shin Soo-Ji’s pitch is based on an acrobatic move called a “back illusion” because it looks like the gyrating gymnast turned her back to home plate when she was really spinning her leg.

Rhythmic gymnastics are always beautiful and impressive, but the dugouts may never be the same.
