Fresh off obliterating the field at the 2016 Rio Olympics, Katie Ledecky was in Washington D.C. on Wednesday to throw out the first pitch prior to the Nationals game. Of course she brought her medals with her.
The only problem is, when you have that many medals it isn't easy to throw a pitch. Good thing Bryce Harper was around to help.
When you have too many Olympic medals so you have to ask the MVP to hold them while you throw out the first pitch. pic.twitter.com/m6w8l02m5n— CSN Nationals (@CSNNationals) August 24, 2016
With Harper carefully holding each medal in a way that ensured they couldn't bump each other, Ledecky fired a strike.
Then, everyone celebrated. Ledecky has so many medals, there were more than enough to go around.

If Ledecky pitched like she swims, she would throw the pitch and the catcher would return the ball to her before the batter finally swings.
