Erik Estrada Sings “Ball Game,” Fails

The Richmond Flying Squirrels had special guest at The Diamond on Wednesday.

Erik Estrada, infamous for his role on the late-1970s to early 1980s TV show "CHiPs," threw out the first pitch, entertained fans and even attempted to sing "Take Me Out To The Ball Game."

But more on that later.

The appearance was presented by the Virginia State Police H.E.A.T. Program.

The still ever-so-charming Estrada was all smiles as he spent time and signed autographs for representatives from the H.E.A.T. program, local law enforcement and fans.

He signed autographs and met with his endearing public until the seventh-inning stretch.

That's when things got ugly:

Estrada was booed after he attempted to sing "Take Me Out To The Ball Game," and failed miserably.

To be fair, he did  warn fans that he only was familar with the latin version of the song.

The "CHiPs" star was a good sport about it all. He shook hands and shared a few laughs with fans immediately following the fiasco. Why he tried to sing a song he didn't know remains a mystery.
