Cheyenne Woods' fame continues to grow, which means at some point, she was going to be asked to throw out the first pitch at a baseball game. It happened Wednesday night, when Woods, in Tampa for a Symetra Tour event, did the honor before the Rays' game against the Minnesota Twins.
Woods posted a video to her Instagram account and she seemed pretty happy with how the toss turned out:
Not bad at all. Sure, Woods came up a little short, but couldn't the guy catching the ball (We think Brandon Guyer, who Woods took a picture with right before the pitch) have come up with that cleanly? The outfielder was playing out of position, but he's a Major League Baseball player! You've got to come up with that ball!
In any event, Woods fared much better than Lexi Thompson, who bounced her first pitch at a Miami Marlins game last Friday. To her credit, Thompson joked about it on Twitter after, saying she "threw a grounder" and that she's sticking to golf.
So will Woods, but both should keep their throwing arms loose. At a combined 42 years old, these two should be in the spotlight for a while.
