Well, here’s a different throwback pitch…
‘The Flash’ star Ezra Miller made a surprise appearance with rapper Matisyahu for Jewish Heritage Day at Citi Field this weekend, when the two threw a ball — and it was made of unleavened bread.
A source told us about Miller: “They announced, ‘Please join Grammy-nominated Jewish rapper Matisyahu and his friend Ezra Miller as they launch, for the first time in history of major league baseball, the home field of unleavened ball!”
We learn that the rapper threw the edible ball, while Miller was a receiver and general manager of debates.
The star apparently wore a yarmulke over a Mets hat.
Video obtained by Page Six showed Miller selecting the correct matzo ball backstage at the stadium to throw, and also showing the ball in the field.
A source tells us that Miller used a family recipe for the matzo ball and that the artist “tweaked the recipe – more flour and a denser ball – it was one of his proudest days. “.
We learn that Miller has also toured with Matisyahu, and clips on social media show the star performing with the rapper at gigs to play percussion.
A fan tweeted from the scene, “The Mets pull out all the stops for Jewish Heritage Day at Citi Field. Matisyahu threw a ceremonial first pitch and performed live between innings. Ike Davis, Ty Kelly, Art Shamsky and Josh Satin were recognized on a scoreboard. The organist even played “The Chanukah Song”.
It was a lighter moment for struggling star Miller, who recently had a temporary hara*sment order lifted in Ma*sachusetts after facing allegations of hara*sment of a 12-year-old child, which Miller flatly denied. .
The superhero star had previously posted on social media when the order was lifted in July: “I am encouraged by today’s outcome and very grateful at this time to everyone who stood by my sides and have sought to ensure that this gross misuse of the protection order system has been stopped… I have been unfairly and directly targeted.
No criminal charges were ever filed against Miller.
The star was also embroiled in a series of bizarre run-ins with the law in 2022, including receiving 10,911 calls in the space of 30 days in Hawaii.
The ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ star said she would seek mental health treatment.
“Having recently gone through a period of intense crisis, I now understand that I have complex mental health issues and have started ongoing treatment,” Miller told Variety in August 2022 via a statement. “I want to apologize to anyone who has alarmed and upset me with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the work necessary to return to a healthy, safe and productive stage of my life.
