Actress and Taekwondo Athlete Taemi Aims for First Pitch Supremacy

Korean ceremonial first pitches: Where the real war of skill takes place on a baseball mound.

Taemi (also known as K Kim and Tammy which just makes google searching much too difficult) must have seen rhythmic gymnast Shin Soo Ji’s first pitch and decided to challenge her for the What-Kind-of-Fuckery-is-This Title by fighting her way onto the mound for a Doosan Bears game (pun entirely intended).  Once there, Taemi stared down the catcher, arched her back and then unleashed a Street Fighter cheat code on the baseball world:

What in the flipping fuq.

She could beat me up any day.

She could beat me up any day.

I’m not even sure which one is more impressive, the girl who bent her entire torso around her leg like a loose windmill, or the girl who launched herself into an in-the-air somersault to deliver a pitch near home base without throwing up everywhere.

All that I know is that both Shin Soo Ji and Taemi have done the impossible and made baseball actually entertaining to watch.

I am eagerly awaiting the next athlete to try and up the ante in ceremonial first pitches. It will probably be done by somehow incorporating pole dancing and twerking in the routine, while actual baseball players slowly die inside knowing that their life long ambitions have now been reduced to being a much too lengthy epilogue to the new main event.
