Look out, South Korea. Japan's challenging your history of odd first pitches at baseball games.
Actress Rina Takeda is rather proficient in martial arts, so before her first pitch at Sunday's Chiba Lotte Marines-Seibu Lions game, she broke a stack of blocks with her head. What kind of blocks? We're not exactly sure. Regardless, it was an attention-grabbing opener for a first pitch.
The first pitch wasn't as good as the block-breaking, but that's OK. We await South Korea's response.
