When Florida Governor Rick Scott took to the mound on Saturday at a pre-season game between the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays, some in the crowd made clear they were no fans of the Republican lawmaker.

Scott, who was elected into office in the midterm elections last year, was on hand to deliver the opening pitch at the spring training camp match-up in Tampa. According to the AP:

Scott was greeted by boos, mixed with modest applause, at Saturday's game in Tampa. The governor was wearing Yankee's garb when he delivered a straight fastball.
The good news for the Florida governor is that he seemed to deliver a much stronger pitching performance than his predecessor, Republican-turned-independent Charlie Crist. Crist lofted a pitch way outside when he took to the mound at a Tampa Bay Rays game last year.

Scott reportedly didn't comment after he threw the ball across the plate.

Via local station WTSP 10 comes video of Scott's ballpark appearance.

"some in the crowd" would be expected to not like the Governor. I'm sure there are still a few radical leftist nutwings down there.

Walker won with only a plurality of the vote in the three way race. So more people voted against him (meaning for his opponents) than for him. And by far most of the people who voted against him, and probably still don't like him, are not radical leftist nutwings at all.

a splatter of fans booing elected officials at a baseball game is about as uncommon as someone booing an umpire at a baseball game. It happens every time.

Sack, I just bought the bargain of the year, from the DVD barrel at Wal-Mart. A bundle of 3 DVD's, for just $3 total.
Sportscenter year in review, 2006.
March Madness..The greatest moments of the NCAA Tournament,
and a 3 disk set..."The Bronx Is Burning"
2006 had some pretty good highlights. Bonds, Barry,not James,was chasing Hank AAron's record. Tiger wins at the British Open, Andre says goodbye at the open, Kobe scores 81

It was far more than a splattering, Sack. Did you watch the video????

This guy is a crook, AND he turned down money for a high speed rail, that his constituents wanted, and which would have brought immediate jobs, and some PREMANENT jobs to their state, AND protected the environment.

Do you think that people who live near Tampa, want to have to sit in backed up traffic, everytime they want to go to the other coast??? The H.S.rail wasn't supposed to go just to Orlando, you know.

Maybe he understood that the cost of that "free money" from Washington was just too high.
