    Charlie Sheen Throws Out The Opening Pitch At The Rogers Centre (Video)

    It has been approximately 18 years since Charlie Sheen was throwing fastballs down the plate as Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn in the movie, Major League II.

    Snoop Dogg is from Long Beach, California, and he cheers for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but that didn’t seem to stop the Chicago White Sox from thinking that he would be the perfect celebrity to throw out the opening pitch prior to yesterday’s game against the Minnesota Twins.

    Bear Grylls’ Opening Pitch Was On Fire (Video)

    Stephen Strasburg of the Washington Nationals may be able to reach 100 miles per hour on the radar gun, but I bet he can’t throw a flaming fastball quite like Bear Grylls of Man vs. Wild. Grylls put his survival instincts on display during the opening pitch prior to last night’s game between the Pittsburgh […]

    Three weeks ago the San Diego Padres invited a performer from Cirque du Soleil to throw out the opening pitch prior to their game against the Kansas City Royals.  It gained plenty of coverage on both sports blogs and sports news shows, and its success caused the Tampa Bay Rays to try something similar last […]

    Those with arms and hands who were in attendance at Fenway Park last night were busy grabbing boobs.  As for those without arms or hands, they were busy throwing out the opening pitch prior to the Red Sox game against the Baltimore Orioles. Tom Willis, who was born without arms or hands, has made it […]

    Cirque du Soliel Performer Throws Out Opening Pitch (Video)

    When an opening pitch earns a spot on the nightly highlight package, nine times out of ten it is for all the wrong reasons.  But when we are treated to that other one-out-of-ten, it can be quite remarkable.  Take last night’s game between the Kansas City Royals and the San Diego Padres at Petco Park, […]

    Man With No Arms Or Legs Throws Out Opening Pitch In Japan (Video)

    This clip is amazing, awe-inspiring and hilarious all in one. During a Japanese League baseball game on May 6th between Seibu and Rakuten, sportswriter Hirotada Ototake threw out the opening pitch.  What makes this both amazing and awe-inspiring is the fact that Ototake was born with no arms or legs.  He is popular in his […]

    A Robot Delivered The Opening Pitch At Today’s Phillies Game (Video)

    I thought I had seen it all after watching fisherman Dave Mercer cast his opening pitch at a Toronto Blue Jays game a few years ago. I was wrong. During today’s matinee game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Philadelphia Phillies, a robot made by engineers from the University of Pennsylvania was assigned the task […]

    At about this time last summer we brought you what may have very well been the strangest opening pitch ever after Dave Mercer brought his fishing rod to the mound to perform the “opening cast” prior to a Toronto Blue Jays game.  It is one year later and we have finally found someone who has […]

    Shawn Johnson’s Opening Pitch That Barely Made It (Video)

    Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson may be able to leap over tall buildings in a single bound, but she can’t throw a ball three feet. In attendance to throw out the opening pitch at an Iowa Cubs game, the American gymnast gave us what may very well be the worst performances from the mound ever.  […]

  • Mariah Carey’s Opening Pitch Disaster (GIF)

    Mariah Carey’s Opening Pitch Disaster (GIF)

    I’m not sure what to think of this opening pitch from Mariah Carey.  After all, it required about four bounces before reaching the plate, but even she is capable of making such poor technique and execution look remarkably good.  And those high heels and skimpy shorts certainly don’t hurt her cause. I guess it could […]
