Girls' Generation member Jessica has captured the limelight recently, not with her performance on-stage but rather due to her gaffe on the baseball field.
She was invited to throw the first pitch at a professional baseball game between LG Twins and Samsung Lions last Friday, and turned up sporting a uniform with her name on it, skinny jeans, pink sneakers and a baseball glove with pink feathers.
Jessica wound up her pitch with a perfect pose and looked set to hurl a fastball. However, she ended up accidentally dumping the ball on the ground immediately in front of her, drawing laughter from the fans while she cringed with embarrassment.
As videos of her throw went viral online, one commentator on American sports outlet Sports Grid said, "This incredible example of how not to throw out the ceremonial first pitch comes to us from South Korea."
