Ceremonial first pitches are a tradition in baseball but this has one has to go down as one of the weirdest.

Characters of the new Japanese horror film Sadako vs. Kayako, a spinoff movie of The Grudge and The Ring, took part in the promotion at a game between the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters and the Yakult Swallows.

The characters faced off at the home plate with Sadako from The Ring pitching to The Grudge's Kayako.

The scene which unraveled is truly bizarre.
