Mystics’ Charles throws first pitch to Nats-Mets at Citi Field originally appeared NBC Sports Washington
Fresh from her third straight Olympic race with Team USA to result in a gold medal, Washington Mystics star center and native Queens Tina Charles participated in the first match of the New York Mets’ doubleheader on Thursday and threw the ceremonial first course.
Are you in the second dugout? The Nationals, who were in town for a three-game series. After the pitch, manager Davey Martinez got a picture with the former WNBA MVP.
Charles, 32, has been the Mystics’ (8-10) best player this season. She leads the WNBA with 26.3 points per game. Match, which is more than five points higher than second-place Jonquel Jones. Mystics will welcome her back from the Olympic break in Tokyo this weekend with open arms, who want to hold on to the fourth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
But on Thursday, Charles was applauded by fans from her hometown for helping extend Team USA’s race with seven straight gold medals at the Olympics. A quick photo shoot with the leader of another DC sports team is a nice added bonus.
