Baseball kid Christian Haupt – Dodgers Prodigy Documentary

By Cathy Byrd

Christian Haupt was the youngest person ever to throw a first pitch at a Major League Baseball game at the age of three and was featured in the 2014 MLB All Star Game pre-game show on FOX at the age of five. Christian was discovered on YouTube by Adam Sandler for a baseball playing cameo role in the movie “That’s My Boy” when he was two years-old. 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. He continues to love baseball 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! Rights for this video belong to Time Warner Cable and “Dodgers Clubhouse”.


Cathy Byrd is a very proud mother and real estate agent living in Thousand Oaks with her husband Michael Haupt and children, Christian and Charlotte.
