"If I were a baseball player" by Kiira Korpi

Kiira Korpi, now in South Korea, threw out the opening pitch at Doosan Bears vs SK Wyverns professional baseball game on 20th April.

According to the news, Kiira was interested in the baseball fever in Korea and wanted to see baseball fans from the mound.

Thanks hmm and Sam for the comments, JM_Leee and YuNarsha for tweets.

Thanks for the video, kyunghyang!
Kiira was taught how to respond to hand signals from the catcher and throw a ball… no, no, yes… strike!

[Festa on Ice] Day 2: April 17

According to the Wikipedia article of Festa on Ice, the show was splitted to two acts, and Kiira performed Butterfly in the first act and If I were a boy in the second act. Also both acts featured many performances by all of the skaters.

All skaters – I gotta feeling:

Kiira Korpi – Butterfly (starts at 2:28):

All ladies – Run devil run:

Kiira Korpi – If I were a boy:

All skaters – Abracadabra, Magic:
