Girl group aespa takes the pitcher’s mound for the first pitch in Major League Baseball.
aespa will throw the first pitch at the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox game, which will be held at Yankee Stadium in New York on the 8th.
On the 7th of June, the New York Yankees announced the news, stating, “We look forward to aespa, the K-pop sensation, throwing their first memorable pitch.” This will be aespa’s first time throwing the first pitch, and it is gaining attention as they will do so on the stage of the U.S. Major League. It is the second time for a female Korean celebrity to throw the first pitch at the Major League, following Suzy in 2014.
aespa departed for New York on the morning of the 7th through Incheon International Airport for this occasion. Giselle will not be able to participate due to health reasons.
Meanwhile, aespa recently concluded their activities for their third mini-album, ‘MY WORLD.’ After completing performances in Jakarta, Indonesia on June 24th and at the Tokyo Dome on August 5th and 6th, they will hold their first solo concert in eight cities in the United States, starting with Los Angeles on August 13th, followed by Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Chicago, Boston, and Brooklyn. They plan to meet their local fans up close during these concerts.
