    Dr. Anthony Fauci was booed as he walked out to throw the first pitch at the Mariners game against the New York Yankees in Seattle.

    Fauci, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director, was met with boos from fans in Washington state, which has had stringent COVID-19 mandates throughout the pandemic under Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee.

    Some baseball fans on Tuesday cheered Fauci on, and the loud disapproval of others seems to have not affected his aim.

    Fauci was ridiculed in 2020 after he threw an awkward first pitch at the Washington Nationals game.
