The battle between two of Japan’s greatest horror icons in Sadako vs. Kayako is getting tons of hype. These two vengeful Japanese spirits have recently taken their battle from the big screen and into the baseball field, as the two were given the honor of participating in the baseball tradition known as the ceremonial first pitch.
This baseball face-off between The Ring’s Sadako and The Grudge’s Kayako happened inside the Sapporo Dome, as the hometown Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters took on the visiting Yakult Swallows. The ceremony started with Sadako entering the mound, and then she is followed by her adversary, who is accompanied by her son, Toshio, who was sporting a “I ♡ Kayako” T-shirt. Here. watch the full video:
With Sadako, who is definitely no stranger to throwing a ceremonial baseball pitch, acting as the pitcher, and Kayako (with Toshio at her side) as the batter, the two gave a preview of their face-off in the movie, which will premiere in Japan on 18 June. For her pitch, The Ring’s resident vengeful spirit was clocked in at 96Kph, while The Grudge’s representative hit the ball to left field. Not bad, not bad at all!
