Preschooler throws first pitch at MLB game - Baseball Kid Christian Haupt www.cathy-byrd.com
- Published: 17 September 2012
Christian Haupt was the youngest person to ever throw a first pitch at a Major League Baseball game a few days after his 4th birthday. Christian was discovered by Adam Sandler on YouTube for a baseball playing cameo role in the movie "That's My Boy" at the age of two and was featured in the MLB All Star Game pre-game show on FOX at the age of five. Nobody in our family ever watched or played baseball so his fascination with the sport at such a young age came as quite a surprise to us! Christian practiced his Clayton Kershaw imitation for months before throwing out the first pitch at the LA Dodgers game in 2012. Now eight years old, he continues to love baseball and plays on a highly competitive travel baseball team that made it to the Pony World Series. He plays pitcher and shortstop.
