While Meg might not have thrown a fastball, she did a better job than these celebrities.

If the first pitch of the opening game sets the tone for the whole season, then the Astros are slated to have a killer one. The team brought out the Houston Hottie, Megan Thee Stallion, to handle the tradition, and fans loved it.

On Thursday, the 2022 World Series champs faced off against the Chicago White Sox at Minute Maid Park. Megan stepped to the mound repping her home team in an Astros jersey with her last name – Pete – on the back on top of the numbers, “222.” The only thing that placed her outside team uniform regulations was her blinged-out necklace with a pendant reading “Hot Girl.”
