ST. LOUIS, MO – President Obama threw out the first pitch at the 2009 All-Star Game. But a certain little mutant made off with the ball!
President Barack Obama arrived in St. Louis early yesterday afternoon. Wanting to leave a good impression he made time to visit the stadium to practice pitching before the eyes of the world were on him at the start of the game.
America’s favorite mutant, Bat Boy, was on hand while the President prepared to give his pitch. When he arrived and how he got past security remains unclear. The two started by playing catch, both taking in the joy of being on a professional field. Then Bat Boy stood by encouraging President Obama as he practiced pitching from the mound. It is believed that Obama was checking in with him on current mutant issues, particularly the mutant controversy surrounding Sonia Sotomayor. After the warm up Bat Boy joined the President for a lunch of burgers and fries.
President Obama opened the All-Star game last night by delivering the first pitch. He wore a jacket of his beloved Chicago White Sox. After his pitch he joined Fox News commentators in the booth to call the game.
The ball the president threw out has since gone missing. No one is sure exactly what happened to it, but security cameras caught a brief picture afterwards of Bat Boy leaving the stadium with a baseball in hand.
No official charges are expected to be filed for the theft of the ball. If they are, the President says he will grant a full pardon and pay for the price of the ball. Bat Boy’s current whereabouts are unknown.
