10 Funniest Baseball First Pitches

Baseball first pitches are a silly thing. They mean nothing, are there just for show and you just know that 99 percent of the time the person throwing it is going to look like a complete idiot. When signing up to take on this gig, you think that these people would practice heavily to avoid being featured on a funny sports bloopers compilation. Apparently not though as time after time celebrities, politicians, animals and freaking fictional characters (yup Darth Vader is on this list, didn’t see that one coming on a sports channel did ya?) make fools of themselves trying to pitch a baseball.

The mistakes can often be repeated in these pitches. People like Michael Jordan, 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg release their balls too early and that causes the ball to go careening off to the side of the plate like a swerving car. Other times people like Carly Rae Jepsen will release the ball too late so that it hits the dirt so fast you may not even see it. But the worst of the worst have to be the ones who just didn’t care. The ones who didn’t put one iota of thought into their throw and disrespecting the sacred tradition of baseball ceremonial first pitches. Yes we’re looking at you Mariah Carey with your ridiculous high heels to throw a baseball in Japan. How dare you. With all that out of the way, here are the 15 funniest first pitches in Baseball history. Enjoy!

I'm Erin Goettlicher, and I'm a professional softball coach. After I played through high school, I went out and played for college level, and then spent a cup of tea at the professional level. I'm self-employed, and own Pro Softball Training. Pro Softball Training offers instruction in all kinds of softball. You name it, we can do it. Today, I will be talking to you about softball. Fast-pitch softball bats are designed to perform specifically to our sport or, to the ball coming in at a high speed. Fast-pitch bats are typically made of aluminum, and are also known as a composite. The difference in a softball bat from a baseball bat is that many softball bats are designed to have a little bit larger barrel area or, a little bit larger sweet spot. Partly due to the fact that the ball, the ball is a little bit wider in softball than it is in baseball. And to show you a difference here, a baseball bat is usually a little bit more evenly dispersed, where with this bat, you can see the barrel is definitely wider. Composite bats are designed to create a trampoline effect off the wall. So, when the ball hits the bat, there's a slight bend or give in the wall of the bat that helps trampoline the ball off the bat. There's lots of different types that you can choose from, but today, most bats are made with a lot of technology behind them and a lot of research has gone in to how to make bats perform the best. Slow-pitch bats are similar to a fast-pitch bat where they're typically metaled as well. However they're usually a little bit longer and sometimes a little bit heavier, because we don't have to swing this bat, with quite as much speed, as you do with a fast-pitch bat. Many fast-pitch bats are weighted a little bit lighter so that we can have quicker hands, react quicker, and get that bat through the zone a little bit quicker, since we don't have much time to react to a fast pitch. This here is an example of a wooden Major League baseball bat and it's 34 ounces. Baseball, uses much heavier bats than softball, mostly due to the strength of men versus women. Our bats are a lot lighter also, due to the small amount of reaction time we have. We need to be able to control that bat and get it through the zone quickly, when that pitch is coming at us.
