Baseball and Dan Quayle

It's the start of the baseball season. Tuesday, the Arizon Diamondback's General Manager Bob Melvin was asked by a reporter for MLB.com about his most memorable opening day moment.

He replied that it involved Vice-President Dan Quayle throwing out the first pitch.

"I caught [then vice president] Dan Quayle's first pitch in Baltimore, and he wanted me to get down, and I wouldn't do it," Melvin said. "I didn't want to embarrass myself and not catch it, so there was a little bit of an issue there that stalled things for a bit."

In case you're wondering the pitch was slightly off to the right.
