Take notes, 50 Cent, Dr. Fauci and Steve Aoki … Miles Tellershowed exactly how a first pitch should be done on Wednesday — throwing a perfect strike before the Phillies game!
The “Top Gun: Maverick” star was at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia for the Phils’ “Top Gun” night … and the team allowed him to toe the rubber for the game’s ceremonial first pitch.
And, Teller didn’t disappoint while on the mound — ripping a fastball right down the middle to Phillies legend Ryan Howard!!!
Of course, the throw shouldn’t surprise many … 35-year-old Teller is a huge baseball guy — and has previously said he might have picked a pro career on the diamond over an acting one if given the choice back in high school.
Teller told local media after the throw that he used some advice from Phillies star Nick Castellanos to complete the toss — explaining the outfielder told him, “let it eat.”
Seems the first pitch was good luck for the Phillies, ’cause they went on to win the game over the SF Giants, 6-5.
