JLin Ceremonial Dodgers Pitch

Admin’s Note: Let’s add main videos/pictures in the post as we’re adding extra ones in the comments.  I’ll do the same for Media Day.

On Sept 27, 2014,  Lin was invited to throw the 1st ceremonial pitch in the Dodgers Baseball stadium. This event is usually extended for honorary guests (i.e. artists, politician, non-baseball athletes, etc.)

Lin actually coached the catcher Joc Pederson (guy who caught the baseball) back in Palo Alto to play basketball with Lin’s younger brother!

Jeremy announced, “It’s time to play Dodgers baseball!!!” with quite a flair. (a little Gangnam Style thrown in there)  😆

In Access SportsNet interview with Jeremy Lin at Dodgers Stadium, Jeremy shared about his expectations with the Lakers. At one point, Nomar Garciaparra (6x All-Star MLB ex-baseball player) provided a funny moment when saying, “You played for Knicks … now you’ll be playing for the Lakers” without any mention of Houston stopover for 2 years (mark 1:41)

Jeremy also threw a playful twitter job teasing his new teammate, Nick Young, who did not fare very well in throwing his own 1st pitch.
