INDIANAPOLIS -- With recent controversy regarding a controversial abortion law, Indiana Governor Mike Pence is not a popular person with some people in the state.

A few of those people were at the Indianapolis Indians game Thursday night. 

Pence and Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett threw ceremonial pitches for the home opener of the Indians game against the Columbus Clippers.

When Pence was introduced over the field's PA, he was booed by many fans in the stands. 

In a video posted by Twitter user @LindsayAlyvia, the boos can be heard throughout the stands. There were also some people cheering for Pence, but they were overshadowed by the booing.
