While thre are times that baseball's ceremonial first pitch is rather boring, you have to admit the San Diego Padres know how to do it up right, as they fielded a special guest during yesterday's traditional toss.
During Wednesday's rubber match of the Kansas City-San Diego Padres series at Petco Field, a life-sized baby T-Rex from the arena show "Walking with Dinosaurs" threw out the first pitch at Petco Park.
T-Rex's First Pitch
After bobbling the one-hopper from the baby T-Rex, San Diego's Swinging Friar mascot attempted to return the ball to the pitcher and, shades of "Jurrasic Park," almost had his head bitten off. I'm not sure if the T-Rex was embarrased over bouncing the pitch, or gave in to his baser instincts, but to say the least, the Fat Friar was surprisingly nimble on his feet.
You gotta' love it!
