TAMPA (AP) -- Gov. Rick Scott received a chilly reception while throwing the first pitch at a spring training game between the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays.

Scott was greeted by boos, mixed with modest applause, at Saturday's game in Tampa. The governor was wearing Yankee's garb when he delivered a straight fastball.

He did not comment after the pitch.

    A Southern man don't need him around anyhow...words of Lynard Skynard. Respect is not given, it's earned. He's earned nothing.

    For those of you that do not understand politics, let me explain. He did not come up with these ideas alone.Matter of fact it was democrats and republicans who advise him, just like our President.All states who have our retirement are changing to this system. I'm old fashioned, I feel we have to give him the respect while in public, just as I would our president and i'm a true republican. I guess it's a southern thing ( respect) and I'm bald!!!

    Gov. Baldy could care a less about Tallahassee or it's citizens. I'm tickled pink that he was booed @ the game. He better get used to it cause he definately WILL be booed @ the parade. We can't stand him cause he's trying his best to layoff as many state employees as he can. If he does, watch out private companies in Tally, we won't be giving you our business anymore.
