Holly Sonders managed to work on her short game prior to the Tampa Bay Rays game on Monday night. 

The Big Lead called this peculiar first pitch to our attention and even provided some behind-the-scenes photos as well. 

It seems the popular host of Morning Drive on Golf Channel was at Tropicana Field to throw out the first pitch, but she instead decided to go with what she knows. 

Right before the Rays took down the Rangers, 6-2, in the first of a crucial four-game series, Sonders pitched a baseball toward home to start the festivities. 

Judging by this tweet, she even gave some lessons to star pitcher David Price.

Now chipping a pitch toward home would be enough to keep us entertained for a moment, but this video is complete with another peculiar first pitch. 

At the 19-second mark, we get proof that the Rays were trying to fill the night with as much good luck as possible, because a couple of members of the renowned Radio City Rockettes show up to give us their interpretation of a relay throw home. 

You aren't going to throw a runner out like that. 

Each dancer does their best impression of Bronson Arroyo and kicks their legs high into the air before floating the ball forward. 

All of this is to say that the Rays are certainly thinking outside the box when it comes to getting the games started. 

Seeing as how they took a near must-win from the Rangers, who are also vying for a playoff spot, we fully expect the first pitches to get wackier from here on out.
