Simu Liu backflips after first-pitch strike

September 6th, 2021

Action star Simu Liu raised the stakes Sunday night when he followed up a fantastic first pitch with a flawless backflip prior to the game between the Dodgers and the Giants.

Most celebrities have enough trouble getting their ceremonial first pitch over the plate. But Liu, the 32-year-old actor, writer and stuntman who is currently starring in Marvel Studios' "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings," delivered a strike and stuck the landing without even stepping off the mound.

Filming locations for the summer blockbuster took place in the Fisherman's Wharf, Russian Hill, Noe Valley and Nob Hill neighborhoods of San Francisco last year. The movie made its big screen debut in Los Angeles on Aug. 16.
