Video: Cristiano Ronaldo throws slightly weedy first pitch at Dodgers Stadium

Posted by Chris Wright

Real Madrid are in Los Angeles at the moment to take part in a little pre-season shindig called the Guinness International Champions Cup against the Galaxy, AC Milan, Valencia, Juventus, Inter Milan, and (rather randomly) Everton, and as such Cristiano Ronaldo and the boys were invited down to Dodgers Stadium to watch a bit of baseball.

Indeed, Ronaldo was even invited out onto the mound to throw the ceremonial first pitch of the game against the New York Yankees, though the results were less than stellar in a kind of "don't give up your day job" way...

After laughing off his ever-so-slightly weedy attempt, Ronaldo swiftly returned to his comfort zone with a quick game of keepy-uppy at the side of the field, juggling baseballs with Dodgers batter Yaseil Puig - who's freestyle chops were none too shabby either.
