NEW YORK (AP) Triple Crown winning jockey Victor Espinoza has a little giddyup on his fastball, too.

A day after riding American Pharoah to a commanding victory at the Belmont Stakes to become the first jockey since 1978 to guide a horse to victories at the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont, Espinoza threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the New York Yankees played the Los Angeles on Sunday.

Just a short trip from the site of his historic ride, Espinoza waved to the appreciative crowd as he strode to the mound wearing a pinstriped Yankees jersey that came to his knees.

He moved the game ball that had been placed on the rubber and took a wind up, making perfect throw just off the corner of home plate.
