Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price threw the first pitch at a Washington Nationals baseball game on Wednesday and was met with boos from the crowd.

Price, who was previously a five-term congressman from Georgia, was one of the top Trump administration officials who pushed for the repeal and replace of Obamacare.

Price was met with boos as he approached the mound to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., according to those who were at the game.

Washington Post reporter Jorge Castill sent out a tweet noting the boos.

Others on social media also noted the unwelcoming baseball crowd.

A former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, Dan Pfeiffer, said whoever's idea it was to have Price throw the first pitch should be fired.

The Nationals won 10-1 against the Miami Marlins.
