Cristiano Ronaldo may be one of the most deadliest finishers in football but his accuracy deserted him when he threw the ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game.
Video: Cristiano Ronaldo First Pitch Attempt
The Real Madrid star took to the mound before the Los Angeles Dodgers entertained the New York Yankees in California.
His first throw to Dodgers rookie slugger Yasiel Puig was woefully wayward and left the former Manchester United striker looking suitably embarrassed.
But the Portugal international was given a second chance and this time he made a much better effort.
He also used his dynamic feet to show how to juggle a baseball only for Puig, who hails from Cuba, to match his skills.[fbphotos id=555847384473371]
Ronaldo is in LA with Real Madrid as part of the pre-season tour of the United States and he then posed for photographs with Puig, who is expected to enjoy an All-Star career, and Hollywood A-lister Samuel L. Jackson.
The game was won 3-0 by the Yankees when they scored all their runs at the top of the ninth inning.
The game was scoreless until then as Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw and Yankees opposite number Hideki Kuroda showed Ronaldo how to throw a baseball with unerring precision.
