Golf influencer Paige Spiranac threw out the first pitch for the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday for a second consecutive year, this time to commence the team’s 5-4 home victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Spiranac, 30, received terrible comments online shaming her body last year, yet was still confident enough to once again take the mound.
Her pitch made it to the catcher and was much better than some professional athletes who have participated in the throwing ceremony, including Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
Spiranac was promoting indoor golf simulator X-Golf. She is a brand ambassador for the company.
She also showed off the “Paige Spiranac bobblehead” that every fan in attendance at American Family Field received.
Who is Paige Spiranac?
Born on March 26, 1993, in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, Paige discovered her love for golf at an early age thanks to her father, Dan Spiranac.
Paige competed in junior golf tournaments before earning a scholarship to San Diego State University, where she played from 2012 to 2015.
During her time at SDSU, Spiranac was a vital member of the women’s golf team, earning All-Mountain West Conference honors and leading her team to victory in several tournaments.
After failing to make a name for herself in the LGPA Tour, Spiranac focused on her social media presence, amassing a huge following in the world of golf.
