G.I. Joe's Snake Eyes Throws First Pitch and Manages Not to Vanquish Any Players

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterDecember 20, 2016

If you are looking to bolster your bullpen with a strong left-hander who has a deadly hook, you might want to take a look at Snake Eyes. 

For the Win's Mike Foss spotted this video of the G.I. Joe character, who is played by the extremely talented Ray Park, doing a little twirly-whirly before tossing out the first pitch. 

Unfortunately, Storm Shadow was absent, which is so like him. 

Also, you heard right—the man behind the mask is the infinitely talented Park, who you might remember as Toad from X-Men

Of course, he also played the best part in an unfortunate movie, taking up the double-bladed lightsaber of Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace

Park has the thankless job of donning immense makeup and masks and performing captivating stuntsall without showing his face. 

Well, he did the same for the multitude in attendance at Coliseum. 

All of this was to promote the new DVD release of a movie I am proud to say I paid money to see in the theater. Yes, you can join Snake Eyes, Roadblock and many others as you watch G.I. Joe: Retaliation from the comfort of your own home (Fans of Duke may want to shield their eyes).

As for this brief stint on the mound, I rather enjoyed Park's delivery despite the ball bouncing in the dirt. I also enjoyed the A's announcers talking up the new movie they are totally going to watch later that night. 

Well, any night that features huge explosions, fight scenes on the wall of a cliff and ridiculous stunts will indeed make any night a memorable one. 

And now you know, and knowing is half the battle.
