Australian League's 'Hiccups Kid' throws out first pitch for Adelaide Bite

'Hiccups Kid' throws first pitch at ABL game

The world first met Ethan Hall when the 7-year-old singer adorably hiccuped his way through the Australian national anthem before an Adelaide Bite game in ABL play back in November.

On Friday, Hall made his triumphant return to Adelaide's Norwood Oval where he received a personalized commemorative jersey and had the chance to throw out a ceremonial first pitch before the Bite hosted the Sydney Blue Sox. He did so with some Batman-esque mechanics.

Cut4 obviously isn't making PR and marketing decisions for any of the ABL franchises, but if we had the keys to the Bite, this kid would be singing, pitching and hopefully hiccuping at so many games that he'd become a pillar of the stadium experience on par with the seventh-inning stretch.
