Question: What do Ben Affleck, Rudy Giuliani, Chewbacca and Judge Judy have in common?
They have all thrown out the first pitch of a major league baseball game.
Now it's time to add a new celebrity to the not-so-legendary list: PhillieBot.
That's the name of the one-armed, three-wheeled robot (created by engineers at the University of Pennsylvania) who threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Wednesday's Phillies-Brewers game. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the robot's appearance has been in the making for a month and a half and was the headline attraction for the ballpark's Science Day.
So how did PhillieBot fare? Not so great - he bounced the pitch to the Phillie Phanatic, the team's iconic mascot.
Most crowds would probably laugh and gamely applaud the robot's attempt. But.
You guessed it - PhillieBot was booed.
