Gymnast McKayla Maroney Throws Very Acrobatic Pitch at White Sox Game

At Friday's White Sox game in Chicago, when Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney threw out the ceremonial first pitch, she gave her throw a twist and added a little tumbling pass.

Looks like a cartwheel to a front walkover? Any gymnasts want to weigh in? Whatever you want to call it, it's awesome. As a nod to her "not impressed" meme, the official White Sox Twitter feed called it "very impressive."

E! reports that this wasn't Maroney's first time on the mound — in 2012, she, Gabby Douglas and Kyla Ross threw out the ball at a Dodgers game. But that was very straightforward; the tumbling is so much more fun!
