The woman who threw out the ceremonial first pitch ahead of Tuesday’s game between the Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals made sure a nearby photographer got a great look at the ball.
To quote Harry Doyle from Major League, her pitch was “just a bit outside,” as she hit Darren Georgia rather than find her mark behind home plate.
Not the greatest moment for the White Sox employee of the month – who now becomes baseball’s biggest laughing stock.
Chicago reliever Evan Marshall, who was set up to catch the ball, spoke for everybody who watched the sequence unfold with his shocked reaction to the moment.
While we’re still waiting on the spin rate data, it appeared the woman added a bit too much break to her throw.
An embarrassing moment, but is it the worst first pitch of all time?
You be the judge:
