Melina Perez sports a sassy, short cut.

On Friday, August 10 at 7:00 p.m., one of my all-time favorite female professional wrestlers, Melina Perez will be appearing at Richmond Country Ballpark at St. George, the home of the Staten Island Yankees, the short-season, Single-A, New York-Penn League (NYPL) affiliate of the New York Yankees. The former WWE star will be throwing out the first pitch and signing autographs for fans.

WWE inked Perez, 39, to a contract in 2003. The Los Angles, California, native debuted on SmackDown as the manager of MNM (Mercury, Nitro, Melina), comprised of wrestlers Joey Mercury and Johnny Nitro, who also wrestled as Johnny Morrison in WWE, and currently as Johnny Impact and Jonny Mundo for Impact Wrestling and Lucha Underground, respectively.
