Ric Flair threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Marlins and players showcased their fandom

When you look up the term "legend" regarding the wrestling world, you'll more than likely see a picture of Ric Flair. After spending four decades in various wrestling organizations, Flair landed in the World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2008 and once again in 2012.
He's known for his flashy and over-the-top ways, so seeing him at a Marlins game on Wrestling Night seemed natural. On Friday night as the Marlins hosted the Reds, Flair threw out the ceremonial first pitch to AJ Ramos, and in typical Flair fashion, showed off a bit. This time, however, Ramos got in on the entertainment.

Flair, during the broadcast, mentioned he loved to watch Giancarlo Stanton play and credited him as his "favorite player right now." He of course gave his signature "WOO!" and even found a fan in Joey Vottoprior to the game.

Flair remains one of the most beloved figures in sports entertainment. To see he's a baseball fan just makes it that much sweeter.
