That kind of throw would get you benched from most Little League teams.

Thank God this was a Tee Ball game.

Astros trifecta now in play

Why would you even bother trying that with a runner on third?

Wow. That was actually worse than what i imagined

Was the pitcher putting tar on the ball?

That clip is in no way representative of the Astros season. The stands are packed.

Technically, he did fire a near-perfect strike to the base where the play wound up being.  So Pagnozzi should have been charged with a catching rather than throwing error.

I'm thinking failed pump fake.

Andy Pettitte's last game. He's retiring. Got the complete-game win too, thanks to that screwup.

Looks like the guy was out at home, but dont expect to get calls with sloppy play like that.

He almost certainly was going to throw and then changed his mind, but he was too far along in the motion and he was losing the ball.

I'm assuming he's the son of Tom Pagnozzi, who played for the Cardinals in the 80s and 90s?

Oops, nephew.

I feel a little sorry for Bo Porter.

"Los" Astros?
/do their regular uniforms read "The Astros", or just simply "Astros"?

Regular unis are just Astros, I believe. It's part of the weird sports ritual, "Celebrate Hispanic heritage by throwing El or Los in front of the regular team name".

Petite's last game and I bet people figured RIvera might get trotted out for one last save, his last game ever as well.

Benjamin Stone: I'm assuming he's the son of Tom Pagnozzi, who played for the Cardinals in the 80s and 90s?


One of my favorites... Todd Ziell, Mike Matheny, and Rex Huddler. Can you tell I was a catcher?
