Why didn’t they show him throwing it to the catcher?

Precisely my sentiments.

Baseball has a very special place in my heart. My father and I had a very strained relationship, but there is one thing for which I will always be grateful. He taught me how to play baseball. He taught me about the game, its intricacies, its traditions, and its place in the American tradition. I went to many a ball game with him, and during those moments, we were close.

SRM covers for 0 again!!! Catcher was not shown during Obama’s first pitch! Only Obama was shown. Where did the ball go? Who knows?

The crowd noise seemed oddly “quiet.” I couldn’t really hear a lot of booing or cheering. Surprising. Did Fox turn down the volume to make the booing less obvious?

They didn’t show the catcher!!!!!!!! Did the ball make it all the way? Were they afraid it wouldn’t make it all the way? My sons can make it. Why can’t a grown man? Hmmmmm.

Glad to be preaching to a fine choir here my FRiends. Baseball is like NO other sport to me for a myriad reasons, but one big reason is that it is SO AMERICAN.

I’ve never seen anything like this, where a ‘dignatary’ throws out a first pitch and the camera doesn’t cover it.

I’m betting Pujols came out of the crouch and stepped forward for the ball.

That is almost scary, something you’d read about in a novel about a megalomaniac taking over the free world, controlling the media to the point they are forbidden to show where his first pitch at a baseball game went.

“Catcher” was Pujols, which kind of flies in the face of traditiion. Of course, the Messiah would want to be associated with the man of the hour, doncha know.

Here’s MY take on why they didn’t show the pitch. If it fails horribly, no one sees it. If he actually reaches Pujols’ glove, the left will scream that the camera angles cheated everyone out of a pitch that was even better than W’s in NY back in 2001...

No lose proposition - something cheaters and cowards like to set themselves up for often.

Obama spoke, silence.
GWB spoke, wild cheering and applause.
Clinton spoke, silence.
GHWB spoke, more wild cheering and applause.
Carter spoke... BOOING!

EXCELLENT!!!

Like I said, the MSM will claim Obama was cheered and he threw a perfect strike.

They will probably doctor the audio to edit out the booing like they did with Hilliary.

Unbelievable.

"Gibson looks great!"

With the possible exception of Nolan Ryan, no one through harder than Bob Gibson, my boyhood idol - and I grew up in Cali and Ohio. What a baseball player and completely underrated or should I say under appreciated by modern baseball media.

Good lord the MSM media covering for this fool extends all the way to sports. A million cameras all in High Def and not one was allowed to see this b*tch throw for fear he would bounce a 58 ft change-up.

Disgusting.

****Why didn’t they show him throwing it to the catcher?****

I was wondering the same thing. He threw like a girl. HAHA. The camera was strategically placed so as to not show the pitch. I would not be surprise if that was a condition Obama had before hand so as to not embarrass him.

As an aside I noticed that when they ran the names of the 30 community all-stars one of them was Darrell Scott. He's the father of Rachael Scott who was killed in the Columbine shooting in 1999. He and wife ex-wife wrote a nice book in tribute to their daughter called Rachael's Tears.
