(Video) Cirque du Soleil Guy Busts Out Freaky Flip Move During Ceremonial Pitch

I’ll give this niftily attired Cirque du Soleil performer this: he’s no Carl Lewis. Or, for a more contemporary example, he’s no John Wall, either. And that’s a good thing. The above ceremonial first pitch, thrown prior to the Kansas City Royals and San Diego Padres (a heated, historic rivalry right there) taking the field last night at Petco Park is definitely one of the more flamboyant, acrobatic ceremonial pitches I have ever seen. I mean he was flipping and flopping and still managed to fire a pitch right down Broadway. Well done.

Oh, and here’s a bit of trivia for you: Cirque du Soleil? It means “Circus from Soleil.” Maybe. I don’t know, I don’t speak German.
