Who's ready to play ball?!

Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney stole the show at the Chicago White Sox baseball game Friday night when she took to the mound to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Wearing the team's jersey, the "Fierce 5" athlete threw right to the catcher's glove, but not before doing a full-on cartwheel and flip.

"One of our more creative pitches from Olympic gold medalist McKayla Maroney," the baseball team Tweeted after the game began. "A very impressive first pitch." More like amazing first pitch! 

Once fans started talking about her skills, Maroney played it cool, or maybe she was just "not impressed."

"FYI I've already thrown a pitch from the mound," she tweeted with a video to her past experience at a Los Angeles Dodgers game. "I was just unveiling my changeup pitch;)."

Whatever you want to call it, we're super impressed with Maroney's stunt. Now if only she can share some tips with 50 Cent.
