WATCH: Fan at Astros game has terrible first pitch

One lucky Astros fan was invited to throw out the first pitch before Tuesday night's Athletics-Astros game. And after watching her fail as badly as 50 Cent did, the team may want to consider vetting their choices next time...

Astros fan spikes first pitch into the ground (Video)

A Houston Astros fan botched the ceremonial first pitch before Tuesday night's game at Minute Maid Park by spiking the ball into the ground. It wasn't planned, but was more a matter of releasing the ball too late in her throwing motion. She probably could have used a little more practice.Astros mascot Orbit hung his head in disappointment, but gave the fan a reassuring...

It’s a tall order, but this Astros fan’s first pitch may be one of the worst ever (video)

The pantheon of pathetic ceremonial first pitches is packed with poor showings, embarrassing failures and outright travesties. So many, in fact, that it would take far too much time to chronicle each and every one of them. While it is indeed harder than it looks – just ask 50 Cent — the act of either […] The post It’s a tall order, but this Astros fan’s first pitch may...

Astros Fan Tops 50 Cent, Miss Texas For Year’s Worst First Pitch (Video)

Stop the fight. We have a winner. The 2014 Major League Baseball season has seen the full gamut of terrible, horrible, no good, very bad ceremonial first pitches, but the one tossed out Tuesday by one “lucky” Houston Astros fan takes the cake.

DraftKings – Hey, McHugh, Get Off Of My Cloud

And get into my DraftKings roster. When I was 19-20 years old, we used to go to my buddies house and drink 40's in his side yard. With nothing else better to do, we would just get wasted, smoke cheap cigarettes and try to entertain each other anyway we could. This would consist of telling jokes, watching TV on a 6 inch black and white or lighting things on fire. One day my buddy...

Your browser does not support iframes. Is it just me, or has this been one of the worst years for ceremonial first pitches that Major League Baseball has ever seen? A Houston Astros fan may have topped them all on Tuesday night. As you can see, the young lady spiked the ball directly into the […]

Carter’s three-run blast caps Astros’ comeback

Chris Carter’s a relatively emotionless slugger, a trait that can bring him at times some undue criticism, suggestions he might not care. A slow exit from the batter’s box in the eighth inning was deserved flare Tuesday night. He crushed a 439-foot, go-ahead homer to left field as far as Minute Maid Park’s enclosed roof would allow in a 4-2 Astros win over the A’s. If anything...

This New Horrible First Pitch Takes The Cake (Gif)

Tigers unlikely to land Astros closer Qualls

The Tigers have long been interested in Astros closer Chad Qualls, even before he signed with Houston last winter. Their latest efforts to acquire him appear likely to meet the same fate as their previous ones. "As far as I know, from a Tigers baseball standpoint, there's nothing," manager Brad Ausmus said Tuesday. MLB Network first reported Tuesday morning that Detroit...

Carter's HR in 8th leads Astros over A's 4-2

HOUSTON (AP) Chris Carter hit his 32nd homer, a three-run drive in the eighth inning that lifted the Houston Astros over the Oakland Athletics 4-2 on Tuesday night. Oakland starter Jason Hammel had retired 10 straight batters when he was replaced by Luke Gregerson (3-3) for the eighth inning. Robbie Grossman reached on an error by first baseman Stephen Vogt with one out and Gregerson...

Houston Astros’ Mascot Attempts To Play Twister With A’s

The Houston Astros may not be a big name team, but they may have the best mascot in the league. The large green fuzzy alien is named Orbit and has quite a few hilarious moments this season. This time his target was the Oakland Athletics while they were stretching for the game. First up, center-fielder Coco Crisp. Houston Astros mascot attempts to have fun with Coco Crisp. Next,...

WATCH: Top Candidate for Worst First-Pitch of the Season

The Houston Astros have a way of destroying the game of baseball as we know it. While that might change in the near future with the influx of young talent on the team, the first pitch that this lady threw out before their game with the Oakland Athletics will live forever.  That’s not necessarily the trajectory you want the ball to take when it leaves for home plate. Then again...

The Astros may still be able to sign top pick Brady Aiken

You'll recall that the Astros, after a contentious negotiation, failed to come to terms with top overall 2014 pick Brady Aiken, the highly regarded prep lefty out of San Diego. Since the July 18 signing deadline has long since passed, the assumption was that Aiken would honor his commitment to UCLA or go the junior college route and re-enter the draft in 2015. Now, though, it...

A's pull out 5-4 victory over Astros

The A's spent eight innings fumbling and bumbling their way to what seemed a sure loss, then regained the poise that has them fighting for the American League West lead with a huge three-run ninth inning, good for a 5-4 win over the Houston Astros. Now the A's (78-54) won't be more than a game behind the Angels, playing Miami on the West Coast, when the two A.L. West...
