Fresh off missing the cut at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic in San Francisco, Natalie Gulbis faced the daunting task of throwing out the first pitch at the Oakland Athletics game on Friday night.

There is no upside to throwing out a first pitch, especially for a professional athlete. You throw a strike - good for you, want a cookie? Anything else and you risk getting lumped in with 50 Cent highlights for the rest of your life.

But as you can see below in the Jumbotron at the top of the video, Gulbis tossed it in there pretty good. And because she's Natalie Gulbis, she documented the whole night on social media, and for that, we thank her.
