Worst Pitch Ever???

Worst Pitch Ever???

Where does this one rank on the list of the worst pitches thrown in major league baseball history???

The Latest Baseball Video To Sweep The Nation…

I caught this one on Yahoo’s homepage.

Enjoy!!

George Brett 7-Up Commercial

Although this video does not come close to the comedy provided in this clip, it does show you the marketable side of George Brett.  Brett was a baseball superstar playing in the small-market area of Kansas City.  It’s nice to see that a truly talented player got his due and land a national advertising campaign that is normally reserved for players playing in NY, LA, or Chicago!!!

Beyond Baseball – Grady Sizemore

Just a quick entertaining clip of one the most exciting players in the game…

Explain This – ‘Stupid Bat Tricks’

I don’t even know what to say.  I have watched this at least 20 times over the last 2-3 days and I am still in a ‘blurry’ state of mind because of it….

Either the editor of this video clip is really talented or David Copperfield is hiding behind the dugout…

Celebrity First Pitch – ‘The Top Ten’

Since the begining of July, I have brought you 39 different videos in my ‘Celebrity First Pitch’ series.  In that group, you have seen actors, presidents, singers, as well as former and current professional athletes take their shot at the ceremonial first pitch of a baseball game.

I am going to put this series to rest for a little while, but I thought today would be a perfect time to present the ‘Top 10’ to you for your viewing pleasure.

To get to this list, I conducted  a very non-sceintific analysis by reviewing the comments, page hits, and natural searches to wittle this list of 39 hopefuls to the ‘Top 10’.

So here they are – ‘The 30-Year Old Cardboard Celebrity First Pitch Top 10 Videos’!!!!  Enjoy.

1 – Mark Wahlberg – https://bapple2286.wordpress.com/2009/07/13/celebrity-first-pitch-mark-wahlberg/

Thank you for making this such a fun series.  I look forward to season 2 of ‘Celebrity First Pitch’ which should debut in the coming months!!!

Celebrity First Pitch – Cal Ripken Jr.

Possibly one of the greatest legends in the game.

Imagine showing up to a baseball game and the public address announcer says, “Here to throw out the first pitch in tonight’s game is Hall of Famer and baseball superstar, Cal Ripken, Jr.”.

Now that would be an awesome story to tell!!!

Celebrity First Pitch – Chewbacca

How often are you able to see a 7-foot tall Wookie throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the start of a baseball game??  That’s what I thought – not often at all!!

So if you get that kind of unique chance, you might as well go all out and see the most famous Wookie of them all…. 

Yep, Chewbacca!!!  Enjoy.

2 notable takes from this video.  #1 – I didn’t know ‘Chewy’ was a southpaw.  #2 – I cannot believe that Hans Solo is still with Princess Leah..  🙂

Celebrity First Pitch – The Michelin Man

 Who knew he had it in him??  And this whole time we thought he was just a cheap rip-off of the ‘Stay Puft Marshmallow Man’!!!

I think I counted 2 bounces before it reached the catcher.  2, maybe 3!!!

Celebrity First Pitch – Shaquille O’Neal

I love Shaq!!!  He is a larger-than-life man with a personality to match!!!

This video is from a Cardinals game earlier in the week, and I have to say that it’s fun to watch Shaq and Albert Pujols genuinely enjoying this moment together.  Here we have the biggest star in baseball with the biggest star, literally and figuratively, the sporting world has ever seen.  And they’re having fun!!!

Instant Classic!!!
