Confirmed: Han pitched first at Dodger Stadium

42 star Harrison Ford threw out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium to celebrate Jackie Robinson Day on Monday. Ford stays off the on-screen diamond while playing Branch Rickey in the film, but he nevertheless showcased admirable form on the mound.

The 70-year-old actor has embodied tons of iconic characters throughout his career in Hollywood -- we kind of wish he'd take more opportunities like this to plug his work. He could've fled from U.S. Marshals as a promotion for The Fugitive, gotten himself elected president (and then fought terrorists) for Air Force One, and maybe even found the actual Ark of the Covenant as Indiana Jones.

Anyway, one thing is now abundantly clear: Han pitched first.
