This isn't your run-of-the-mill first pitch video. No winding, twisting, acrobatic tosses. Just bricks on forehead.

Takeda Rina, a Japanese actress and martial arts star, preceded her first pitch at Sunday's Chiba Lotte Marines vs. Seibu Lions game by cracking 10 slabs of concrete with her forehead.

Yep. Ten. Slabs. Of. Concrete.

Rina, predictably, rubbed her head after the stunt. She probably had to mentally prepare herself for throwing a first pitch ... with a swinging batter ... and four furry mascots watching intently from behind home plate.
