Japanese Baseball with a twist

Asking a local celebrity to throw out the first pitch of a baseball game is an Old Time tradition. But prior to Sunday’s match-up between the Seibu Lions and the Chiba Lotte Marines, martial arts actress Takeda Rina raised the bar on pre-game festivities.

Watch here as she wows the crowd by crushing a stack of ten blocks with her head before taking the mound and tossing out the opening ball.

I guess that’s just how they roll in Japan.

Perhaps every baseball game ought to kick off with celebrities smashing inanimate objects with their cranium?
