A Houston Astros players got very handsy with Megan Thee Stallion after she threw out the first pitch on Wednesday.
Megan Thee Stallion, as proud a Houston artist as the city has, was invited to kick off the new MLB season this week.
She did as requested in truly incredible fashion, throwing a heater to David Hensley. While the pitch may have been a bit outside, it still ended up going where it needed to.

In a wild sports week that has seen an NBA player’s wife address whether she cheated on him with his best friend, a University of Miami cheerleader’s provocative photos go viral, and Tom Brady allegedly hook up with an A-list actress, Megan Thee Stallion’s first pitch somehow stole the show.
Whether or not that is a sign of things to come for the Astros remains to be seen.
The video speaks for itself. https://t.co/B8qhwqc8hZ

One season removed from winning the World Series, Houston is once again the hottest city in all of baseball.
Will the Astros be able to win another championship in the 2023-24 season? Time will tell, but Megan Thee Stallion will undoubtedly be there cheering them on every step of the way.
