Marshawn Lynch stirred the pot (literally) before throwing the first pitch in his native Oakland

Originally from Oakland, running back Marshawn Lynch made his homecoming official when he signed with the Raiders this spring. But it didn't feel official until he came out to throw the first pitch at the stadium he'll call home this fall before the Athletics' 7-3 win over the Indians on Sunday. 

After taking the mound (sadly, not in flip flops), Lynch unveiled a new twisting, stirring celebration.

Oddly enough, and perhaps inspired by his former coach with the Seahawks, Lynch threw the ball instead of running it in.
