The Seoul, Korea-based LG Twins brought in the wirey 23-year old right hander Jessica Jung to face some random dude who found himself in the batter’s box for the ceremonial first pitch.
Jung, the Korean-American version of is supposedly best known for her work in a nine-girl group named Girls’ Generation. I’d say google it, but it isn’t worth it. Anyway, Jung certainly took her task seriously, but had obviously never picked up a baseball. One of the fruity mascots even propositioned her with a rosin bag.
The smile was there. Coming set at the belt was a great touch. The anti-slide-step motion was stereotypical of Asian pitchers (out of the wind-up of course) so we’ll give her a bonus point for that. But the result – a Gronk spike – couldn’t have been worse.
At least her shoes were cool – almost as cool as the Chevrolet logo plastered outside the first base line. Buy American, Korea.
