Based on Nyjah Huston’s technique when he threw out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium, May 25, it’s safe to say he won’t be trading his skateboard for a baseball glove anytime soon.
Fresh off a win at the first Street League contest of the season, Huston is taking advantage of some key perks as one of the greatest skateboarders on the planet, just as fellow action sports icon Kelly Slater did when he threw out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium.
While most parents were directing their kids toward mainstream sports like baseball and basketball, Nyjah was busy skateboarding. So throwing the first pitch was harder than the impossible technical tricks he’s known for. Huston tweeted before the game “I have to throw the pitch at a Dodgers game in an hour, very nervous!”
