But have you ever heard of someone who was supposed to throw out a first pitch at a game getting stuck in traffic and not being able to make it?
It has probably happened before, but we didn't hear about it because no one cared. I honestly wouldn't even notice if they skipped the first pitch at a game I attended.
So you're right that I've never heard of this happening. But the reason I've never heard of it is that it's really not important enough to take note of, not because it's never happened before.[/quote]
And really, who cares what team he's a fan of. All kinds of people are recruited to throw out first pitches for all kinds of reasons. Do you think everyone from military people receiving recognition to Little League teams being honored for their performance in Williamsport are all always fans of the home team in whose stadium they happen to be throwing out their first pitch?
