Obama “throws” first pitch, gets mixture of cheers and boo’s at All Star Game

Don’t know how long YouTube will allow this vid to be up, since it looks like it was pulled straight from Fox, but here’s Obama’s first pitch sissy toss at tonight’s All Star Game.

A lot of cheers, but quite a lot of boo’s too, if you ask me….

By the way, the pitch almost landed on the plate. If Pujols wouldn’t have reached out his glove as far as he did, it would have. You would have been able to see that, but for whatever reason, Fox didn’t show the traditional “behind the pitcher” view until the 3rd inning.

    I heard about this on the way home from softball tonight, listening to local Detroit Sports talk radio. The DJ was complaining about Fox not showing the full pitch as they usually do and was blaming them. I have a hunch that Obama’s people told Fox to use this angle, because they knew Obama couldn’t make it the entire way and they didn’t want the obvious comparisons to President Bush, who always threw great strikes.
