There have been plenty of good pitches, but it’s not every day you see a ceremonial pitch thrown at a decent speed. At least, that was before Japanese model Ami Inamura, who recently threw a ceremonial first pitch at 65 mph before a Nippon Professional Baseball game.
Ami Inamura has had her own share of baseball experiences, as she apparently played baseball for nine years from elementary school through junior high. During her years in junior high, she was a pitcher and first baseman in Japan’s senior league. She was also part of a recent Toyota commercial in which she showed her raw ability with a baseball bat. The commercial has gone viral and garnered over six million views on YouTube.
