McCain attends Diamondbacks-Marlins game

PHOENIX (AP) -- GOP presidential hopeful Senator John McCain attended Sunday afternoon's Arizona Diamondbacks game against the Florida Marlins at Chase Field.

McCain sat with Diamondbacks general partner and CEO Jeff Moorad in the front row of seats just to the right of the Arizona dugout, where he signed a few autographs and posed for a handful of photographs.

His second-inning introduction to the crowd was met with a smattering of boos mixed with more dominant applause. McCain received applause again when he was shown on the scoreboard during the playing of "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch.

McCain's initial reception was decidedly cooler than that of Olympic beach volleyball medalist Misty May-Treanor, who received a standing ovation before throwing the ceremonial first pitch to her husband, Marlins catcher Matt Treanor.
