Pharrell Williams New York Yankees

Pharrell Williams threw the first pitch at a New York Yankees game this week, as the iconic baseball team beat hometown rivals the Mets in a Subway Series game at Yankee Stadium. 

Guests throwing the opening ball before the pros is a ritual in baseball that dates back to the 1890s. In this instance, Williams was invited to participate as a result of a new collaborative clothing line his brand, Billionaire Boys Club, has created with the Yankees. Earlier this month, the honour was given to Def Jam rapper Logic.

In June, Williams unveiled a new collaborative single with Tyler, The Creator and 21 Savage, 'Cash In Cash Out'. The latest in a run of tracks made with other artists, so far this year the The Neptunes and N.E.R.D. member has worked alongside Nigo ('Functional Addict', 'Paper Plates'), Pusha T ('Neck & Wrist'), and CALVIN HARRIS ('Stay With Me').
