What is it like to be a Power Ranger?

The magnitude of it is still setting in for three of the actors in the upcoming movie.

"It's definitely something you have to count twice, I think," said Dacre Montgomery, who plays the red ranger in Saban's Power Rangers.

Naomi Scott, who plays the pink power ranger, said "I don't think it's really sunk in yet."

Being in the film is a bit nostalgic for Ludi Lin, who plays the black power ranger. He grew up watching the series, he said. Watch the first pitch below.

"That's what I'm looking most forward to actually -- I would love that for the little kids to experience what I had experienced as a kid," he said.

All three threw the ceremonial first pitch -- in this case, pitches -- at Monday's Spring Training game between the Los Angeles Angels and Chicago Cubs at Tempe's Diablo Stadium.

So, how are the Power Rangers at America's favorite pastime?

Lin's throw went a bit wide to the left and Montgomery's hit the dirt. However, Scott's had the most hang time and made its way to the catcher's glove.

"I was the only one who got it to the mound. I was very proud. It was like the best moment," said Scott. "I'm buzzin' right now."

Saban's Power Rangers tells the story of how the Power Rangers came to be. The movie hits theatres on March 24.
