Guy Boucher, coach of the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning, fired a strike during the ceremonial first pitch before the Rays-Blue Jays game on Friday night.
But he didn't need a wind-up, only a wrist shot.
Boucher opted to stand atop the pitching mound with the baseball perched on the rubber.
Boucher took aim at catcher Stephen Vogt, who played the part of goaltender with a hockey stick and catcher's mitt, and fired a wrist shot over home plate (as you can see in the video below).
The Rays were honoring the Lightning, who will be celebrating their 20th anniversary this season, if there is one.
The NHL has locked out its players after the two sides failed to agree on a new collective bargaining agreement last week.
