America’s most unpopular governor Chris Christie makes incredible foul ball catch at Tuesday’s Mets game and gets immediately booed by the entire stadium.
The cheers for the News York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals turned to boos on July 18th when New Jersey Governor Chris Christie caught a fly ball. As the video shows – the boos were loud, long and sustained.
Chris Christie might not pay attention to poll numbers or even care what they reveal. He may even completely deny poll numbers indicating that people in his own state can’t stand him – despite the interviews and articles clearly laying out what people do think about him. He can ignore all of that, but it’s going to be hard to ignore being booed by more than 40,000 people when he attended the Tuesday night New York Mets versus St. Louis Cardinals baseball game.
Most recently, Christie found himself the target of hostility after he was caught on camera soaking up the sun with his family at a New Jersey beach he closed to the public in response to a budget deadlock in the New Jersey assembly.
Mocking Christie over that incident, sports fan website The Comeback reports that: “When not chilling on the beach, Christie is attending Mets games.”
“He caught a foul ball at Tuesday’s Mets-Cardinals game, and while that is usually good luck for fans, it was bad luck for Christie; as he showed up on stadium screens and videoboards, ball in hand, the New York crowd made their feelings known.”

You can hear one of the announcers remark “are you kidding me.” Another announcer sarcastically adds: “Nice to see him get off the beach and to the ball park.”
This isn’t the first time this sort of thing has happened to Christie. In August 2015 Christie was booed by a record crowd of New Jersey residents (60,983 to be exact) at a horse race at Monmouth Park.
