Actor Jon Hamm was immortalized in bobblehead form Monday night by the St. Louis Cardinals, so he showed up at Busch Stadium to meet the Cards players and throw out the first pitch.

Hamm, when he's shaved up and slicked back, makes ovaries swoon as Don Draper on the hit AMC show "Mad Men." He was also in the recent baseball movie "Million Dollar Arm" and he proved Monday night his arm isn't too bad.

Hamm didn't fire his first pitch, opting for an easy rainbow that bounced right in front of Cardinals legend Ozzie Smith, who was waiting to catch it. We'll call Hamm's a hundred-dollar arm.

Didn't part of you hope that Hamm would 50 Cent his first pitch? The guy wins at life pretty steadily — starring in one of the best shows on TV, being the object of affection for women all over the country, getting his own bobblehead, not to mention his other, ummm, gifts.

A bumbled first pitch would have at least balanced things out a bit. 

While Don Draper has proven an adulterous husband over the seven and a half seasons of "Mad Men," Hamm has never cheated on the Cardinals. He's a born-and-raised Cards fan from St. Louis. Monday night's game went to extra innings and while many celebrities who throw out a first pitch atan MLB game jet after a couple of innings, Hamm was there until the very end.

We try to hate you, Jon Hamm, and you just won't let us. Sigh.
