The President elected not to throw out the first pitch, so that honor fell on world renowned professional chef, Jose Andres. Andreas is known for being a staunch critic of the President.
After the third inning Trump and his posse were shown on the large video screen to overwhelming “boos” from the crowd.
As you can see at the 18 second mark in the following clip, when they show Trump on the screen the cheers quickly shift to booing.
Right before the 4th Inning began the crowd started chanting “Lock him up”; a reversal of the anti Hillary Clinton “lock her up” chants that usually happen at Trump’s political rallies. Soon afterwards, #LockHimUp started trending on Twitter

They way you look at your husband when you remember how much you hate him for the shit he got your name attached to forever as a part of history. #LockHimUp #LockThemUp #TrumpVideo #Melania pic.twitter.com/yDIG1TbrBT— MyLibraryCardWoreOut (@mlcwo) October 28, 2019
Donald Trump undoubtedly thought he was going to be taking a victory lap by showing up at the World Series after the killing of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, but the crowd felt otherwise…— Bob Marsdale (@BobMarsdale) October 28, 2019
Chanting “Lock him up!” #Lockhimup
It must suck to be the most hated man in America. But for once in his life, he’s earned this. #LockHimUp— Brandon Besserer (@BrandonBesserer) October 28, 2019
This is perfection. You can see Trump as he realizes the crowd is boo’ing him. He looks at Melania. She seems to be saying “just smile and clap until it’s over. It may not be as bad as it sounds up here.” Then the crowd starts chanting #LockHimUp.— Randi Mayem Singer (@rmayemsinger) October 28, 2019
Give it a day. Somehow it will be a deep state fake news hoax that 40,000 people burst into chants of “lock him up” when Trump appeared on screen. All the videos were faked, but if they weren’t faked, the people booing were obviously crisis actors paid by the Clintons. #LockHimUp— Yvette d’Entremont (@TheSciBabe) October 28, 2019
I must admit I’m pretty happy about this. I’ve never been a fan of Trump but he’s been off the rails into a whole other world of insanity lately.
This is just the kind of thing needed to push him over the edge. I’m sure he’ll try and deny it for a while. Maybe he even has some sycophants spin it on Fox. But he knows what happened. He knows he’s not popular anymore. He’s knows he’s done.
Maybe a few more events like this will tell him it’s time to throw in the towel and resign before he gets forced out in disgrace.
We can only hope.
