"Flash mob" plays catch on governor's lawn

A "flash mob" of liberal activists staged a game of catch on the State Capitol lawn on Thursday morning, poking fun at this week's gubernatorial baseball theme.

About enough people to field two baseball teams tossed balls back and forth for a while, drawing mild curiosity from State Capitol Police officers but no arrests.

Advocacy groups called out Gov. Pat McCrory for playing catch on Monday rather than meeting with a group of school children delivering petitions calling on the governor to support education.

On Wednesday, McCrory released a video he made congratulating N.C. State and UNC baseball teams for making it to the College World Series. In it, McCrory sports a baseball glove and ball in hand, and makes reference to the earlier controversy.
