You can forgive this South Korean rhythmic gymnast for missing the strike zone a bit high and outside.

Her whirligig ceremonial first pitch at a Korean baseball game will go down in the pantheon of great tosses — Shawn Johnson and Jordyn Wieber not included.

The Korean baseball aficionado who posted the video confirmed on Twitter that it’s the same South Korean gymnast who placed 12th in rhythmic gymnastics at the 2008 Olympics.

She’s proving a two-sport star.
