aespa’s Karina successfully throws her first pitch despite delay in schedule, grabs attention with her visuals

aespa‘s Karina almost missed her chance to pitch, but she made it happen!

On June 9th, Karina threw the first pitch before the second game of the doubleheader between the SSG Landers and the Lotte Giants in the ‘2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League‘ at Sajik Sports Complex in Busan.

Fans were worried about her busy day. She had a fan signing in Busan at 1 PM, was supposed to pitch at 5 PM, and then had another fan signing in Daegu at 8 PM.

The game on June 8th got rained out and was moved to 2 PM on June 9th. If the first game went long, Karina might not have pitched. But luckily, it all worked out.

Before pitching, Karina told fans, “I practiced. I can do it!!!” She then stepped onto the field for her first-ever pitch.

Karina said, “It’s my first pitch ever, and I’m honored to do it for the Lotte Giants at Sajik Stadium,” adding, “I will throw the ball with the spirit of supporting the Lotte Giants.”

She also promoted her group, saying, “Please give lots of love to aespa as well.”

Karina‘s pitch was a strike. With her long hair flowing and looking stunning, she showed off her perfect pitching skills.

Fans’ worries disappeared with her amazing throw.
