Carlton Banks Throws Out First Pitch In Minors On “Fresh Prince” Night (Photo)


Cue Tom Jones and start doing the Carlton Dance.

The State College Spikes, Class-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, had Alfonso Ribeiro, also known as Carlton Banks from the famous TV show “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” throw out the first pitch during Sunday’s game against the Williamsport Crosscutters.

State College, Penn., is a few thousand miles away from Bel-Air, but for one night, it was the freshest baseball town in America. Players on the Spikes wore “Fresh Prince” jerseys with the team’s logos stylized in graffiti.

Before the game, Carlton took pictures with fans and players before doing his famous dance on top of the dugout.

The Spikes used the Carlton Dance as a good luck charm and shut out the Crosscutters 5-0.
