‘Stick to football’ – Gareth Bale trolled by new club LAFC after throwing first pitch ahead of LA Dodgers MLB game

    GARETH BALE was hilariously told to “stick to football” after throwing the first pitch at a baseball game yesterday.

    The 33-year-old Wales star was given the honour by the Los Angeles Dodgers ahead of their MLB game against the Minnesota Twins.

    Bale threw out their first pitch alongside LAFC team-mate Kelly Acosta dressed in an LA Dodgers jersey.

    And Bale gave a better account than Acosta for his pitch, finding the gloves of Dodgers ace Justin Turner without the ball bouncing on the floor.

    Acosta meanwhile got it all wrong, throwing a grounder as his ball bounced into Turner’s hands.

    But the LAFC Twitter account was far from impressed with both of their efforts.

    They mercilessly trolled the pair by posting a video of his pitch and writing: “Stick to football.”

    Bale did redeem himself by showing off his football skills… with a baseball.

    He casually performed kick-ups with the smaller than normal sized ball as he enjoyed a night off at Dodger Stadium.

    The Welsh wizard took in the action as the Dodgers eased to a 10-3 win over the Twins.

    LAFC ace Bale has enjoyed a stellar start with his new team – scoring two goals in four MLS games since leaving Real Madrid.

    One of those strikes being an individual wondergoal against Real Salt Lake at the weekend.

    The effort helped LAFC to a fifth successive league win and saw them stay top of the Western Conference.
