DETROIT (AP) -

Boxing star Claressa Shields says she's still weighing her options about whether to turn pro.

The two-time Olympic gold medalist threw out the ceremonial first pitch Monday night when the Detroit Tigers hosted the Minnesota Twins. Shields, a Flint native, won her second gold at this year's Rio Olympics.

It's not clear what the future holds now. She said she'd like to "have the best of both worlds" if a rule change allows women's boxers to turn pro and still fight in the Olympics.

Shields said she hopes her success brings attention to the water crisis and poverty level in Flint.

"People will see that even though that I came from Flint, look at where I am now," she said. "I hope that it gives those kids in Flint hope."
