It seems like McKayla Maroney is everywhere these days. The former Olympic gold medalist in gymnastics was a co-host of the Kid’s Choice Sports Awards last month, and now she is bringing her talents to the baseball diamond for the first pitch of tonight’s Chicago White Sox game against the Minnesota Twins at U.S. Cellular Field.
Maroney, who loves to post “selfies” all over social media, posted some photos of herself prior to the big moment.

The last time Maroney threw out a first pitch, she was an absolute beast and she was excited about her performance — unlike her reaction to the silver medal in London.
We will have to see whether or not Maroney has that same kind of success on Friday night.
If she really wants to impress the crowd, Maroney should try to pull of something like rhythmic gymnast Shin Soo-ji pulled off before a Korean baseball game.
We won’t hold our breath, though.
