Japanese actress smashes 10 blocks with her head before throwing out first pitch

Tuesday July 29th, 2014

Actress Rina Takeda is also a black belt in karate, so she decided to up the level of difficulty when throwing out the first pitch at a game between the Chiba Lotte Marines, and the Seibu Lions by smashing ten blocks with her head first.

Also on Extra Mustard: Teddy Bridgewater's first pitch was not so great

Takeda, who has starred in movies like High Kick Girl!, Karate Girl and The Kunoichi: Ninja Girl, doesn't get quite the same amount of force behind her fastball, but a weak pitch can definitely be forgiven after you smash stones with your forehead.
