Filipino boxing icon Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao threw the ceremonial first pitch in the Los Angeles Dodgers' Major League Baseball game against the Washington Nationals at Dodger Stadium.

Pacquiao is in Los Angeles as part of his 27,000-mile media tour to promote his upcoming showdown against American boxer Chris Algieri in Macau.

Aside from throwing out the first pitch, Pacquiao also posed for pictures with several Dodgers including Hanley Ramirez, and even wore oversized gloves while posing with first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. He also met Dodgers legend Sandy Koufax.

The media tour started in Shanghai and included stops in San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles before wrapping up in New York.
