Game 2 of the World Series has started with a twist - from Simone Biles.
The Olympic champion gymnast did a twisting backflip from in front of the mound, then threw the ceremonial first pitch to Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick.
An on-target toss, too. The packed crowd at Minute Maid Park roared for Biles, a Houston native.

The fans were still standing when Justin Verlander threw the first pitch for real, a ball to Trea Turner.
Biles wasn't the only athlete scheduled to help get Game 2 started. Olympic boxer and Houston-native Marlen Esparza gave the "Play Ball" call to start the game!
The national anthem was sung by USAF Airman First Class Leah Fox.
