You have to see this gymnast's first pitch to believe it

August 8th, 2022

Suni Lee is known for having one of the hardest uneven bars routines in the world. So, when the three-time Olympic medalist and Saint Paul, Minn., native took the mound to throw out the first pitch before Friday’s Blue-Jays-Twins game, it should have come as no surprise that she would try to up the degree of difficulty.

Wearing a customized Twins jersey, Lee did that -- and more -- in performing an effortless flip off the mound and then delivering the ball to home plate, much to the delight of the Target Field crowd.

The moment came almost a year to the date of Lee becoming the sixth American woman to claim an all-around title at the Olympics. The now 19-year-old also received a silver medal in the team event and a bronze in the individual uneven bars in Tokyo.

Now a gymnast at Auburn, Lee scored a perfect 10.0 five times during her freshman season en route to eight All-America honors and a national championship. While no judges were in attendance Friday -- at least that we know of -- it’s safe to say she earned another perfect score.
