Update August 28th:

Taeyeon and Seohyun attended the August 27th baseball game between the LG Twins and Nexen Heroes to kick things off with a ceremonial first pitch and a few encouraging words. Wearing both the jersey of the home team LG Twins and “Despicable Me 2” minion toys, Taeyeon went out to throw the first pitch, while Seohyun, dressed similarly, prepared to hit the baseball at home plate. Taeyeon’s throw flew over home plate and the catcher, hitting one of the minions in the back. Seohyun still played along and swung at the pitch as Taeyeon continued laughing near the pitcher’s mound.

Original article on August 24th:

On August 27th, Taeyeon and Seohyun will make a special appearance at a LG Twins and Nexen Heroes baseball game at Jamsil Stadium. The baseball game will take place at 6:30 PM, and Taeyeon will throw the opening pitch of the game with Seohyun as the honorary batter. This will be Taeyeon’s first time delivering an opening pitch, making her the seventh member of Girls’ Generation to do so, following Jessica, Sunny, Tiffany, Yuri, Yoona, and Seohyun. Seohyun has also previously been the celebratory batter at a Doosan Bears and Kia Tigers game in April of 2009.

The members of Girls’ Generation have been honorary pitchers at two baseball games this year alone, with Tiffany throwing the opening pitch at a Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game in May, and Sunny throwing the opening pitch at a Los Angeles Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds baseball game in July.
