Video: Royals superfan from South Korea throws out awful ceremonial first pitch

It's been a banner week for Kansas City Royals superfan SungWoo Lee.

Lee made the trip to Kansas City for the first time after spending years watching the Royals from afar in South Korea. Due to the time difference, Lee often wakes up in the middle of the night to catch his beloved Royals on the television. Now that's devotion.

Anyways, Lee has been welcomed like a celebrity since arriving in K.C. He's won a dance-off, appeared in local television, been given a glove by broadcasters, and even witnessed his team take over first place Monday night.

Lee also threw out the ceremonial first pitch on Monday. And it didn't quite go as smooth as one would hope. Oh well. It's still been a hell of a trip the U.S. for Lee.
