Grammy-nominated rapper Saweetie strutted onto the pitcher’s mound to deliver the ceremonial first pitch of a Los Angeles Dodgers game against the Chicago Cubs in honor of Filipino Heritage Night. 
Even though she was blinged out with diamond rings and 4-inch-long, jewel-encrusted nails, the “Icy Queen” still managed to dish out a solid pitch. Getting into pitching position while balancing on her Christian Louboutin heels, she tossed the ball straight into the glove of superstar right fielder Mookie Betts.

Saweetie, whose mother is half Chinese and half Filipino, also shouted out fellow Bay Area Filipina musical artist H.E.R., who she collaborated with last year on “Closer,” a single for her debut studio album, “Pretty Bitch Music”.

“It meant [Filipino pride] not only for just Filipinos but especially Bay Area Filipinos,” Saweetie told Vibe. “That’s my girl. It’s like my sister. She’s amazing. I love H.E.R. so much. I wanted someone to sing the hook and there was no one else who I thought about but H.E.R.”
“Pretty Bitch Music” is slated to release later this year.
