On Opening Day Monday

As a holiday weekend for many, I hope you had an enjoyable one in whatever you did. How did you spend your weekend? We had  wide variety of things as an evening on the ballroom floor, working in the yard, playing handbells, and hosting my in-laws.

Meanwhile, although Saturday was sunny and warm, cool temperatures have come to Cincinnati for Monday’s Opening Day. This is always been a special day for Reds fans, so the weather will not dampen spirits.

To celebrate Opening Day in the spirit of Monday Morning Entertainment, here are four of my favorite short pitching videos.  Even though the longest is only 90 seconds, (three are less than a minute), I’ve included a short description to help guide your choices 0 but watch as many as you want. Enjoy and have a great week!

On Opening Day 2010 in Cincinnati, the mayor delivered the worst “throwing out the first ball” ever.

Enjoy this crazy pitch of a ceremonial first pitch.

This one from a Japanese League is awesome. The umpire called it a strike probably for the effort.

Movie buffs may remember this scene from Bull Durham.
