The best ceremonial first pitch ever

16 Comments

How often do you see some celebrity or politician throw out the first pitch at a ballgame, only to have the thing loop in there weakly or, as is often the case, not even make it to home plate?  And that’s when all they’re doing is trying to throw the ball?

We boo them, of course. And after seeing the first pitch from the Padres-Royals game last night, they should be booed more loudly.

I mean really, there are pitchers in baseball who can’t hit the zone like that, and they’re not even doing crazy back flips.
