You have to either be a heck of a hurler, a heck of an athlete or a heck of a human being to get the opportunity to throw a pitch on Fenway's famous bump. Or, in some cases, you just have to know the right people.
Earlier this week, Phillies fans were treated to quite the spectacle: Witnessing a robot toss out the first pitch before the Phils-Brewers game. Naturally, the Phillies fans booed the bot off the field.
While this stunt will go down as the most embarrassing pitching performances of the season for the Phillies, let's take a moment to reflect back on some of Fenway's most memorable first pitch moments. With all due respect to Boston's B-List celebrities, local champs, political officers, war veterans, contest winners, Luis Tiant, Gisele Bundchen, Carl Yastrzemski, Ali from The Bachelorette, Jonah Hill, Trot Nixon, Chewbacca, Jim Calhoun, Kenny Chesney, Bob Cousy, Lance Armstrong and the thousands of others who have tossed out the ceremonial strike, vote for one of the first-pitch moments below.
