Iconic ghost wears baseball cleats, collapses in ceremony's streaming video

The Japanese entertainment news website Movie Collection began streaming a video of the Ring horror films' character Sadako throwing the opening pitch at a baseball game on Wednesday. To promote her Sadako 3D film, which will open in Japan on May 12, Sadako appeared as part of the season-opening ceremony before a game between the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters and Chiba Lotte Marines teams of Japan's Pacific League.

In the video, Sadako shakes her head a few times and finally decides on a pitch that the catcher apparently signs to her. She then moves closer to home plate, throws the ball so that it doesn't bounce, and collapses after the pitch. The Fighters' mascot Brisky the Bear and an official escort her back to the dugout.

The ghost character appeared this month as "Sadako Keroro" in a Sadako 3D and Sgt. Frog (Keroro Gunsō) crossover promotion. "Sadako 3D x Hello Kitty" products will also be sold when the film opens.
