Here's another reminder that it's still only March.
The big news out of today's Phillies spring training game against the Yankees was that Odubel Herrera was scratched from the game for precautionary reasons due to cramps.
The strangest news is that famed prop comic Carrot Top threw out the first pitch.
Most everyone on hand was confused, including Charlie Manuel.
Carrot Top will throw out first ball. He just greeted Cesar Hernandez who responded with a WTF look— Jim Salisbury (@JSalisburyCSN) March 22, 2017

Day 38: Carrot Top is here, wearing a No. 86 Phillies jersey at batting practice. Ten more days.— Matt Gelb (@MattGelb) March 22, 2017
From the looks of it though, the first pitch wasn't half-bad.
Carrot Top does not Baba Booey the first pitch. Top is performing tonight in Clearwater. pic.twitter.com/Zp2Okxa7Vq— Todd Zolecki (@ToddZolecki) March 22, 2017
We're looking forward to April 3 when Jeremy Hellickson will actually throw out the first pitch.
Update: This isn't Carrot Top's first time at a Philadelphia sporting event. Here he is with Jon Dorenbos and Donnie Jones at the Linc before a 2014 game. Because ... of course, he was.
