A Joffrey Ballet dancer threw the most beautiful first pitch in recent memory

While asked to throw a first pitch at a baseball game can be a treacherous and/or embarrassing experience (see Cent, 50), sometimes everything can go exactly right - leading to surprise and delight for fans.

That's what happened at a Chicago Cubs game late last month when Joffrey Ballet dancer Dylan Gutierrez took the mound at Wrigley Field. Gutierrez launched into a 'double tour en l'air' before landing and throwing the ball.

Perhaps even rarer for a celebrity first pitch? Gutierrez successfully got the ball across the plate. Watch the whole thing in the video above.
