Like so many other drinking stories, it started with tequila and tall glasses.
Teigen posted an Instagram picture of her father pouring some healthy margaritas Tuesday afternoon.
With the runway properly foamed, Teigen tweeted out a warning to her 491,000 followers:
Crap I'm pretty drunk— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 5, 2014
Then Mama Teigen fell prey to the agave monster:
My mom is bombed— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 5, 2014
Thus Teigen set the stage for her pitch, which she hoped to be anything but 50 Cent-ish.
"I want to do well," Teigen said before the game. "I really want to nail this…I know there's a ton of 50s. I know a lot of people don’t care, but I care. ... I want to do a fastball strike."
Fastball strikes are the best kind of strike, but after a long day of tangling with the liquid chupacabra, Teigen opted for a safer approach.
With Don Julio as her co-pilot, Teigen took the mound and delivered a high-looping Eephus pitch that bounced once before the plate.
It wasn’t perfect, but it wasn’t "50," and that’s all that mattered. Teigen went with the "high" and "slow" pitch, and it paid off in hugs and tackles.
Congratulations, Chrissy. You drank, you pitched and you conquered—and you didn't end up sleeping in shrubbery, which is always a plus.
