Obama Throws Out First Pitch at The All-Star Game

Obama threw the ceremonial first pitch at the All-Star Game. I would like to tell you how he did, but the only videos I can find do not show the ball at the time it reaches home plate.

Here is the description and the clip (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/allstar09/news/story?id=4326841);

"President Barack Obama was true to his word: He didn't bounce it.

Obama's ceremonial first pitch at the All-Star Game barely reached the plate Tuesday night. St. Louis Cardinals star Albert Pujols helped the president, moving up on the plate and reaching out to scoop the toss.
"



Based on the description it sounds like the pitch was not a strike, but not off by much.

In the video from http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2009/07/obama-booed-in-st-louis.html, it sounds like there were some boos in the background though the cheers were louder.
