Ethan Finlay incorporates soccer into first pitch in MLB game

Ethan Finlay - Columbus Crew SC - Celebrating

Ethan Finlay knows how to delight, and not just on the soccer pitch.

Finlay threw out the first pitch in the Cleveland Indians' home game against the Cincinnati Reds, and pulled off a neat move by kicking the baseball up to himself with his right foot before hurling it towards home plate.

The Columbus Crew SC midfielder "sacrificed some velocity for some showmanship" on the pitch, but he might be asked to come back to Progressive Field all the same. The Indians followed up his toss by posting a season-high in runs and hits in a 15-6 win.

Finlay will soon make his way from the baseball diamond back to the soccer field, as he and Crew SC visit Toronto FC on Saturday (5 pm ET, MLS LIVE)
