Matt Hamilton rolls out first pitch in Minnesota

Olympic Curling Team Honored by Twins

The USA Men's curling team threw out the first pitch of the Minnesota Twins home opener at Target Field.

The entire five man team was there, including McFarland, Wisconsin native and fan favorite Matt Hamilton and Superior, Wisconsin native and team captain John Shuster.

While the gold medal-winning squad got a loud roar from the Twins faithful, their pitching accuracy left a bit to be desired.

Four of the five curlers completely missed their target, and Matt Hamilton chose to roll his to the plate curling style.

Fans who followed the Olympics would've expected nothing less from the eccentric Hamilton who chugged beers, compared himself to Mario and drew the attention of both J.J. Watt and Aaron Rodgers.

In Pyeongchang, the men's curling team was the first ever USA curling team to win Olympic gold.

The entire nation embraced the team who struggled early, falling to 2-2 out of the gate but rallied and won out to secure gold.
