Cristiano Ronaldo and Yasiel Puig, new best friends

July 31st, 2013

Soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo threw out the first pitch at the Dodgers game in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. More importantly, it seems he’s become instant besties with rising MLB star Yasiel Puig.

It all started when “M-V-Puig” gave Cristiano his own personalized Dodgers jersey. Every good friendship starts with a thoughtful gift, right?

Then, the pair bonded while playing a game of keepy-uppy with a baseball. Not bad Puig, not bad at all!

Next, they switched to Ronaldo’s preferred piece of sports equipment, showing off some more juggling skills.

Puig took his turn with the soccer ball, showing that he’s more than just a really, really good baseball player. Maybe he and Steve Nash will form a new summer league team together soon?

And before taking the mound to test out his arm, Ronaldo took a few swings in the batting cages. Yeah, it looks awkward, but he definitely got a piece of it.

At long last, the wait for Ronaldo’s first pitch was over, and boy did it not disappoint. Well, depending which way you look at it.

As you can see, Ronaldo completely underestimated his strength on the “first” first pitch, which sailed high and wide past Puig’s glove. However, he apparently nailed his second attempt. We’re guessing his new best friend gave him some solid instructions.
