Katie Ledecky throws out first pitch as Nats host Orioles

WASHINGTON (AP) One by one, swimmer Katie Ledecky handed her Olympic medals to Bryce Harper. Four gold medals and one silver from the Rio Olympics sat in the hands of the reigning National League MVP.

As the Nationals star outfielder admired the medals of the Olympic champion and held her hat, Ledecky threw the ceremonial first pitch to reliever Shawn Kelley before Washington hosted the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night.

"I've swum in front of 14,000 people," Ledecky said of the pitch. "Once the ball leaves the hand, you can't really control it."
