BTW, my favorite "First Pitch" card is probably the one they made to celebrate 50 Cent's fantastically horrible first pitch at CitiField a couple years ago. Check out that card here. Also, you can watch 50 Cent and his terrible aim here.
Like in years past, Dodger Stadium always seems to be featured more often than any other stadium -- for probably obvious reasons. So, seeing Dodger Stadium represented in three of the ten cards in the set is of no surprise. Check them all out below. I also include a video of their respective throws.
On a side note, this years Update set includes "First Pitch Ticket Stub Relic" cards, as well. Which is strange considering Dodger Stadium no longer prints out actual ticket stubs anymore -- at least not for season ticket holders.

Below are the "First Pitch" cards for Keith Urban, Aubrey Plaza and JoJo Fletcher. I thought I would note, at least from what I recall, that Keith Urban did not actually throw out the first pitch on May 9th, 2016. Instead, he said the words we all think when the game is about to start.
#FP-5 Keith Urban
The card above features country star Keith Urban taking over for Vin Scully. He repeated those immortal words, "It's Time For Dodgers Baseball!" You can watch it in the video below.
#FP-6 Aubrey Plaza
Yeah, this is the cutest outfit ever; especially considering the knee-high Dodger Blue sports socks. Awesome!
Featured above is actress/comedian Aubrey Plaza in Dodger Blue as she prepares for her "First Pitch." I've also included two videos of her below. The first video, courtesy of Stadium Bound, shows her warming up. As you can see, she definitely has played the game. She catches and throws the ball like it's second nature. The video below that features a short stadium interview with her and her "First Pitch."
Watch her "First Pitch" below.
#FP-10 JoJo Fletcher
I'll be totally honest with ya... I have no idea who this person is. But from what I understand, she is a reality TV star, so that explains that.
Featured above is the "First Pitch" card for JoJo Fletcher, and below is her throw.
