The world got to know Ian Ziering when he starred as Steve in Beverly Hills 90210, but the Internet fell in love with him when he used a chainsaw to cut through a shark from the inside out in Syfy's made-for-TV movie, Sharknado. Ziering is set to save New York from a similar weather phenomenon in the upcoming sequel Sharknado 2: The Second One.

In advance of his surely spectacular cinematic performance, Ziering was on hand at New York's Citi Field to throw out a ceremonial first pitch for the Mets.

Sadly (or thankfully, depending on your taste in film) Tara Reid didn't make a cameo. She's in Sharknado 2, though, so you can rest easy.
