Cheyenne Woods is better than Lexi Thompson -- at throwing out first pitches

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:

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.
