Chrissy Teigen Tosses Inebriated Pitch
Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen stated she was “pretty drunk” when she threw out the first pitch at the Los Angeles Dodgers game Tuesday evening. The 28-year-old had admitted on social media that she had been drinking throughout the day.
The first clue Teigen was partying came through Instagram, where she posted a picture of her father. Teigen then wished him happy birthday and claimed they were making maragaritas the way “only dad can.” She closed the post by telling her father she loved him.
Teigan posted two tweets a short time later. In the first one, she stated, “****. I’m pretty drunk.” In the second, she said her mother had also been drinking and described her as being “bombed.”
The model finished her social media day by posting a Vine video showing her practicing for the pitch. Despite being obviously inebriated, she tossed the ball accurately over home plate to the cheers of fans.
Teigen’s confession about drinking prompted many on social media to make comparisons to former Yankee pitcher David Wells, who claimed to have pitched a perfect game while drunk. The feat came against the Minnesota Twins on May 17, 1998, at Yankee Stadium.
