An 11-year-old girl made an unforgettable All-Star memory on Tuesday. Sydney Kehr of Coon Rapids threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Sydney, from the Coon Rapids National Little League, made the throw in front of 40,000 fans at Target Field.

She said she was nervous, but her dad- who shot the video of the pitch- said she did a great job.

"The catcher said it was a strike, but I don’t really know,” Sydney said.

We first told you about Sydney last week, when she was invited to the game, but then was dropped since she didn't play softball.

The catcher for Sydney was Todd Frazier, third basemen for Cincinnati.
