I thought for sure Id have a lot to make fun of here. But he actually did a decent job. I mean he got it across the plate, in the air. Sure it wasnt close to the strike zone but I really dont know how much better you could ask a guy, who wore mom jeans the last time he did it, to throw it. I give it a 7 out of 10. The release was a little high so it sailed on him but in the long run and with a little coaching he could probably strike out the nationals first three batters, which I guess isnt saying much
Here is the best that Ive seen:

2) He threw it short even though he admittedly practiced beforehand trying to make sure that wouldn't happen. ...and despite the fact that Pujols set up in front of the plate.
Since when is the back of the batter's box "across the plate"?
We have a ‘post and run’. No responses.
Dole has a better arm! LOL!
Where the ball went doesn’t matter. It was “deemed” a strike.
#26 must not be a part of the White House or the Justice Department.
They should give him a Cy Young for the contribution he might make to baseball.
What was that? What a lob and not close to the plate. Send Michelle next year, she’s the athlete in the family.
Pray for America
Thats because he used to be one!
Batman, are you trying to tell us this is the reason we can't see the birth certificate?
Puts a whole new light on this 'birthers' thing.
Worth more than 1000 words.
Actually girls and boys throw exactly the same way until they are 6 or 7 years old. Then girls generally stop while boys continue to work on their technique. That is why people like Obama throw like a girl. Like a girl it's something he never does. Girls who keep playing baseball into their teens don't throw like a girl either.
lol...oops, disregard my point #2. I thought the vid was going to be of Obama throwing out the first pitch at the All Star game last year. ...where he threw low to Pujols. Didn’t figure he’d try it again this year.
Anyway, I finally watched today’s vid, and BHO of course threw like an uncoordinated girlyboy (again), but this time the ball didn’t even make it to the same time zone as the catcher.
While he was chatting with the announcers today:
hear his comment today,about going to “KamiNsky Park”??
He thinks it rhymes with “Alinsky Park”
....couldn’t think of his favorite White Sox player (ever) and couldn’t come up with a Cubs name, either.....did manage to make fun of people who drink white wine again at Wrigley Field....
re: Kaminsky Park...He never learned it from the LAST time he blundered thru it....
“Batman, are you trying to tell us this is the reason we can’t see the birth certificate?”
As Bugs Bunny would say: “Umm, could be!
“Got it over the plate”???? Unless he was talking about a plate in the upper deck concession stand, I have no idea what he’s talking about. Obviously I didn’t watch the same video this guy did.
I was wondering what quote you had upr your sleeve.
