Michelle Warnky & James Wilson throw out Cincinnati Reds first pitchPosted by American Ninja Warrior Nation on Monday, May 21, 2018
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!
Had a blast today catching @natininja1 's first pitch at the @reds game today! Was fun going on the field and representing @ninjawarrior , and was awesome to have my parents and some of my #llama friends there to enjoy the experience! . . @lesliebellarberg 's newborn had quite the first game experience! Going on the field, and an umpire even gave him a baseball! Game ended up being intense and went to 11 innings with the Reds winning it!
What an incredible experience! I can’t even begin to explain how honored I am to have been chosen to represent my city “The Nati” and @ninjawarrior Warrior by throwing the ceremonial first pitch w/@michellewarnky catching. Could it get any better than this!!!? #feelingblessed#americanninjawarrior#anw#natininja#goreds#redsbeatcubs#reds#greatamericanballpark#dreamsreallydocometrue
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.
