Nikki Sixx threw out the first pitch at the Los Angeles Dodgers/Houston Astros game on Sunday (May 27) at Dodger Satdium.

The pitch by Sixx bounced in the dirt , but was luckily back handed by catcher A.J Ellis.

After the pitch, Sixx shared on Facebook: “Really grateful being from Los Angeles to be invited to throw out the first pitch today at Dodger stadium (YES i can throw a ball). The Dodgers are on a winning streak and you could feel it in the air everywhere today. (New owners surly helps too.) My family had a blast.”

The Dodgers won the game 5-1 against the Houston Astros. Check out the pitch here: www.mlb.com
