A few months back I featured a preschooler named Christian Haupt who was obsessed with the Dodgers, was already way ahead of his peers when it came to playing the game, and parlayed that into an appearance in the recent Adam Sandler film "That's My Boy". See that story here.
Well, Christian just had a chance to throw the first pitch this past Tuesday to the delight of his family and the crowd. His mom was kind enough to forward along some pictures and a video of the event, and you'll notice that Christian does his best Clayton Kershaw impression while on the mound. Although he didn't reach the plate with his throw, he did get it there on a bounce with a sold throw from the mound; especially for a 3 year old. Really, this kid is that young.
Here is a video of Christian Haupt throwing out the first pitch.
