What's better than getting the ball over the plate at a Giants game? Landing a backflip! The San Francisco Giants hosted Marvel Night on Sunday and had the hottest superhero to throw out the first pitch.Shang-Chi star Simu Liu not only tossed out an impressive first pitch with perfect form, but he also pulled off a perfect backflip on the mound! Major League Baseball shared Liu's skills on Twitter, writing "A perfect strike AND a backflip. Gotta be one of the best first pitches this year."Liu has reasons to be flipping out; Shang Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings pulled in over $90 million over the four-day holiday weekend. That's a record-breaking performance for Labor Day weekend.Unlike the last Marvel release, Black Widow, fans could only see Shang-Chi at theaters and was not released simultaneously on Disney Plus.
