Baby T-Rex Throws Out First Pitch at Padres-Royals Game: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The marketing staff in San Diego tried to spice up a matchup between the Padres and the Royals earlier this week by having a famous individual throw out the first pitch of the game -- a baby Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The miniature T. Rex couldn`t use its tiny arms to get the ball to home plate, so it opted to chuck the baseball with its teeth."

There have been legions of celebrities who have made fools of themselves throwing out the first pitch; a blind man with a wet noodle for an arm could have done a better job.

But Baby Tyrannosaurs Rex didn`t botch his turn at the pitching mound; he threw (with its teeth) a perfect strike, to the delight of the fans.

Baby Rex`s sterling performance wasn`t enough motivation for the San Diego Padres; they lost to Kansas City 8-0.

Baseball is still America`s pastime, even without a dinosaur throwing out the first pitch you`re guaranteed to have a good time.
