It’s not enough that Ali Krieger and the United States women’s national soccer team dominated this year’s World Cup en route to taking gold.

They might now be prepared to take on men on the baseball diamond. Just check out Krieger nailing her first pitch ahead of the Washington Nationals game against the Colorado Rockies on Thursday.

The righty had to make a point here. She legitimately threw that ball from behind the rubber for a perfect strike. The wind-up was also textbook. Maybe some MLB pitchers could use a couple tips from Krieger.
