Lee Sang-hwa Flashes Pitching Skills at League Opener

Speed skater Lee Sang-hwa threw the ceremonial first pitch in the opening game of the 2014 professional baseball league here on Saturday between the Doosan Bears and LG Twins at Seoul's Jamsil Stadium.

Unlike other celebrities, Lee sported the full uniform, including cap and cleats.

She also acquitted herself with a decent pitch, avoiding the kind of bloopers that have plagued other female showbiz stars as they attempted to kick the league off in style in recent years.
