The United States men’s curling team had an incredible run at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in February, bringing home the country’s first gold medal in the event.
Naturally, the victory lap is still going on.
The men’s curling team showed up at the Minnesota Twins’ home opener at Target Field on Thursday in Minneapolis to throw out the first pitch as a group. Four out of the five members of the team are from Minnesota, and all received a huge ovation from the crowd as they took the field.
Yet while their curling run was one of the most iconic moments of the 2018 games, their baseball form was not quite as impressive.
All five members of the team — Joe Polo, John Shuster, Tyler George, Matt Hamilton and John Landsteiner — lined up in a row in front of the mound, all ready to throw to five different catchers at the same time. That’s when things got interesting, or rather chaotic.
Polo threw a strike and had by far the best ball thrown. Landsteiner took the easy route, floating the ball in safely. The other three balls were, well, all over the place.
George threw to the wrong catcher, who had to dive out of the way to avoid the ball and Shuster’s throw — which was directed at him but sailed well over his head.
Hamilton, wisely, stuck to his roots. He rolled the ball in to his catcher just like a curling stone.
But hey, say what you will about their baseball form. Those five won a gold medal in America’s favorite Winter Olympic event.
