The Phillies 3-1 series loss to the Mets got even worse on Saturday when Dan Baker went to go announce who would throw out the first pitch and its some loser with a Mets jersey that’s personalized with “The General.” One quick look at the guy can tell you he couldn’t pass the physical requirements to make it in the military. He also wasnt man enough to throw it from the rubber. His weak arm probably wouldnt have made it so he threw it from the grass. Weak move. But the weaker move was the Phillies allowing this to happen.
Most of the time the first pitch is a complete afterthought, but this is BAD. He probably purchased a bunch of tickets and the Phillies gave him the option not knowing. But as soon as he showed up in THAT jersey, you don’t proceed. You go find some kid in a Phillies jersey and let him do it.
So it got me thinking about other poor decisions Philadelphia sports teams can make that are similar to a first pitch. Eagles, Flyers, Sixers, Phillies please feel free to read the following and NEVER do them.
