Probably The Worst First Pitch EVER! That Poor Camera Guy!

Tuesday night brought us what some have described as the “worst first pitch ever.” There is, however, another way to look at the wayward effort before a White Sox home game against the Royals: It’s the greatest first pitch ever!

The case for that assessment rests on the degree of difficulty, or at least improbability, involved. The ceremonial pitch, thrown by a woman identified as a White Sox employee of the month, managed to hit its target — provided that the target was a team photographer situated at about a 45-degree angle from what he presumed would be the likely path of the ball.

“I knew it wasn’t going to be good, but I thought I’d be close,” the White Sox employee, Mary Ruich, said Wednesday at a news conference. (via the Associated Press,ESPN). “It was scary.”

Ruich, a server at a restaurant in the team’s stadium, said she wasn’t given time to prepare for her moment. When asked if she wanted a second chance, she initially replied “Oh God, no," but then said she might consider it.
