Meet Laurie Hernandez, meet Laurie Hernandez, step right up and greet Laurie Hernandez. The Olympic gold and silver medalist took some time out of her Dancing With the Stars preparations to throw out the first pitch at the Mets’ Saturday-night game against the Nationals, and of course she broke out her most elegant, acrobatic front flip for the occasion. No winking, but look at that smile! You bet the Mets won that night.
