Cristiano Ronaldo Throws Pitch At LA Dodgers (PICTURES)

Cristiano Ronaldo embraced American sport during Real Madrid's pre-season schedule in Los Angeles, as he threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the New York Yankees and the LA Dodgers' game.

Not one to buckle under pressure, Ronaldo however struggled to deliver a perfect pitch, as his throws ended up endangering the nearby cameraman.

The Dodgers' Twitter account described one effort as a strike "down the pipe".

Ronaldo eventually delivered a competent pitch but was more comfortable rubbing shoulders with Magic Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson.
