Rounding out their last day of tour in Florida, Modern Baseball made a special appearance at yesterday’s Tampa Bay Rays game.

In the slow-motion video they shared on Twitter, the band’s bassist Ian Farmer can be seen throwing out the first pitch—a strike, right down the middle. Watch the pitch below.

This past May, Modern Baseball released their third full-length album Holy Ghost, which is included in our 20 best albums of 2016 so far. Check out an in-depth essay at emo’s modernity along with inside-look at a day in the life of this Philly-based emo band.
