Celebrities Who Have Thrown the First Pitch at a Baseball Game
On Oct. 2, Jiff the Pomeranian threw out the first pitch at the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres baseball game in one of the best first pitches we've ever seen. Of course, the little teddy bear pup didn't actually throw it. Rather, he chased after a ball thrown from the pitcher's mound and when he finally retrieved it, his paws were all over it. It was ridiculously adorable—just watch the Instagram video he posted to his 1.8 million followers below for proof.https://instagram.com/p/8ocCYUkXCj/?taken-by=jiffpom
Jiff's throw was a smile-inducing change of pace from the typical first-pitchers—celebrities. But that doesn't mean we don't love them, too! This baseball season was packed with stars heading to the field to support their favorite teams, from your girl-next-door St. Louis native Karlie Kloss to hilarious Aussie comedian Rebel Wilson.
