Like father, like son.
Andrew Christie, a senior baseball player at Princeton University, learned to complain from the best — his dad Chris.
And both have been called out recently.
The ball beat Andrew Christie to the bag by, at the very least, four full steps.
At a recent Tigers game, the New Jersey governor’s son, who rarely get at-bats, was at the plate and hit a grounder to the left side of the infield.
Despite the ball beating him to the bag by, at the very least four full steps, Andrew wasn’t happy with the call.
A few seconds after the ball is thrown to first base, he triumphantly spreads his arms out, emulating a “safe” call, as he finally reaches the bag.
Ties usually go to the runner, but this one wasn’t even close.
Further proving the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, Andrew doesn’t show up to work that much.
In his first two years at Princeton, he only played in three games.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie throws to first base during the first inning of the “True Blue” benefit celebrity softball game at Yankee Stadium in 2015.
Similarly, Chris Christie was only in his state of New Jersey 261 days last year.
With his son being called out at first base, be on the lookout for more traffic near Princeton soon.
