Titan-kun showed up to throw out the first pitch at the opening ceremonies for a game versus the San Diego Padres
On July 05, 2019, at the baseball game between the L.A. Dodgers and the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium, humanity received a grim reminder when the Colossal Titan from Attack on Titan (nicknamed "Titan-kun" here) showed up during opening ceremonies to throw out the first pitch.
In addition to showing off his fastball and his custom Attack on Titan baseball glove, Titan-kun got to hang out and take photos with Kenta Maeda, a Japanese baseball player who pitches for the L.A. Dodgers. Maeda even showed Titan-kun how to perform his signature "Maeken Calisthenics" prior to the game.
I was going to make a joke about the New York Giants, but that's a football team. Sports are not my strong point. I wonder what the non-anime fans thought of the opening ceremonies shenanigans?
