Video: Oregon State All-American Sammy Harrison throws first pitch at OSU-Oregon softball game

It's not often you see a swimmer throw the first pitch at a softball game. But for Oregon State's Sammy Harrison, it was just another "first" in her successful career as a Beaver.

The sophomore solidified her spot in the Oregon State record books when she won the first Pac-12 Conference title in program history at the 2014 Pac-12 Women's Swimming and Diving Championships. In one of the toughest events in the pool, Harrison broke her own school record by over 20 seconds in the 1,650 freestyle with a time of 15:55.57.

Harrison continued her banner year with a 10th-place finish in the same event at the NCAA championships in late March. Her performance earned honorable mention All-America honors, making her the first Beaver in school history to earn an All-America nod in the 1,650 freestyle. 

Watch Harrison show off her pitching skills before the Oregon-Oregon State softball game Monday afternoon in Corvallis:
