Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas will make a pit stop in New York City on Thursday afternoon, Aug. 23.

The gymnast is scheduled to appear at Citi Field to throw out the first pitch for the Mets' 1 p.m. game against the Colorado Rockies.

The Flying Squirrel shared her excitement about her appearance through her Twitter account.

"So excited to be a part of Citi Field Kids & to share my story. And I get to throw out the 1st pitch at the Mets game! #ballin lol!" she tweeted Wednesday.

In addition to throwing the pitch, Douglas will give a talk from the field and share her inspirational tale of Olympic victory to local children from NYC's YMCA branches, Metro reported.

Her time at Citi Field is just the latest in a nationwide media blitz for Douglas, who has received enormous fanfare following her gold medal victory in the all-around women's gymnastics finals at the 2012 London Games.

Douglas appeared with First Lady Michelle Obama on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" last week, where Obama praised her success and teased her about indulging in McDonald's after she finished the competition.

Next up for Douglas is an interview with Oprah Winfrey on "Oprah's Next Chapter." Winfrey visited Douglas at her gym in Des Moines, Iowa, where Douglas trained for the Olympics with coach Liang Chow, and tweeted photos of the pair together, including one shot of the two holding hands on the balance beam.

Douglas' appearance on "Oprah's Next Chapter," which will also include an interview with her mother Natalie Hawkins, will air Aug. 26 on OWN.
