Today, In ‘Dinosaurs Throwing Out First Pitches At Minor League Games’ News

Here is a video of  a guy dressed up in some sort of mechanized Tyrannosaurus Rex getup throwing out the first pitch at a Memphis Redbirds game, the Triple-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. I hate to spoil the surprise, but shockingly, he/it doesn’t perform the task at hand very well, what with “throwing” the ball with its mouth and all. Apparently, minuscule forelimbs are not conducive to throwing a baseball despite the presence of functional biceps brachii muscles capable of lifting up to 199 kilograms.

It’s the musical accompaniment of  “Walk the Dinosaur” by Was (Not Was) that really ties the whole video together, although I would have went with “Keep the Glove” by Dinosaur Jr. Not only because the title has a semi-relevant baseball reference given the atrocious effort put forth by the Tyrannosaurus Rex, but also to to maintain my indie rock credibility.
