Cirque du Soleil Pitcher

(Video Link)

Yesterday, the first pitch in a game between the San Diego Padres and the Kansas City Royals was thrown by a performer from the Cirque du Soleil:

Decked out in a vibrant costume, Gabryel Nogueira da Silva threw out a gravity-defying first pitch that should have John Wall signing up for tee-ball tryouts following his hideous one-hopper at Nats Park.

Watch as da Silva performs a 360-degree backflip on the mound...and then throws a strike for what has to be the best ceremonial first pitch ever.

Land the "twirl" on a mound, rather than flat ground, vonskippy...and then, without having to stop to regain your balance, throw's impressive.

I doubt of most of us could spin around twice on the mound and throw it that accurately.
