5 year-old baseball kid Christian Haupt 2014 MLB All-Star Game commercial & best first pitches


Christian Haupt with Clayton Kershaw

Editor’s note: A very young  prodigy has created a stir in the baseball world. He has thrown opening pitches in big games,  been in movies, and been featured in many publications, such as this one. His opponents in school probably dread his arrival at games.  Google him and search youtube- you’ll see that we aren’t exaggerating.  

We hope this video brings a smile to your face even if you’re not a fan of baseball. Christian Haupt was the youngest person to ever throw a first pitch at a Major League Baseball game at the age of 3 and now stars in the 2014 MLB All Star Game commercial on FOX. At the age of 2, Christian was discovered by Adam Sandler on YouTube for a baseball playing cameo role in the movie “That’s My Boy.” 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’s passion and great luck have led him to meet many of his heroes. At the age of five, he continues to love the sport and plays on Hall of Fame baseball player Orlando Cepeda’s travel team — the Cepeda Bulls. Photographer Mark J. Terrill’s AP photo of Christian’s first pitch at Dodger Stadium in 2012 now hangs on the walls at Dodger Stadium and in the home of legendary Dodger pitcher Sandy Koufax. He is one lucky kid! “The Script – Hall of Fame” music rights belong to SME. www.facebook.com/christianhauptbaseball.
