Matt tries his hand at a first pitch

How does he stack up against the other Ninjas?

The list of Ninja personalities crossing over to the baseball diamond continues to grow! Matt Iseman took the mound at Citi Field and delivered the first pitch at a Mets Game earlier this week.

Matt Iseman's First Pitch

Posted by American Ninja Warrior Nation on Thursday, May 24, 2018

The Ninja Warrior host had redemption on his mind after his booth-mate, Akbar Gbajabiamila, launched one into the ground in Philly. Unfortunately, Matt may have been trying a little too hard to avoid Akbar’s misstep as his pitch soared over the head of the catcher. But hey, if you combine the two pitches together, it would be a perfect strike. That’s why these two work as a team!

Matt sported a Red Nose on the mound to help promote Red Nose Day, an event happening tonight on NBC to raise money to combat child poverty. Tune in and watch Celebrity Ninja Warrior at 8/7c and support the cause by visiting this link: https://act.rednoseday.org/page/contribute/donate-now.
