Michelle Warnky and James Wilson represented Ninja Warrior on the Cincinnati Reds’ field

They threw, and caught, the ceremonial first pitch.

The Cincinnati Reds welcomed American Ninja Warriors Michelle Warnky and James Wilson to their field. The Ninjas threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the May 19 game, with Michelle as the catcher and James pitching.

Both of them were incredibly proud to represent Ninja Warrior and Cincinnati. Looks like they had a great time!

James has competed on American Ninja Warrior five times. Michelle also has five seasons under her belt and is considered one of the pioneering female Ninja athletes. Both James and Michelle will appear on season 10 of the show as well.

It’s awesome to see our beloved Ninja athletes getting some recognition from other sports! And we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that, yes, they did better than Akbar.
