Could It Have Been Any Other Way?
I am watching the game between the Phillies and the Diamondbacks. It's throwback night in Philly in honor of their 1993 team. Mitch Williams threw out the first pitch ... and it was wild and almost nailed the Phanatic. Could it have been any other way? Update: I finally got to see the full video (the Diamondbacks broadcast included various parts and a nice description by broadcaster Steve Berthiaume, but most of the details were missing), and the Phanatic actually looked pretty safe, but the ball girls certainly had to jump out of the way when the first pitch went wild.
