Price was reportedly met with boos and only a few cheers when he took the mound at Nationals Park to toss the ceremonial first pitch, according to multiple people at the ball park.
Price was one of the administration’s public faces in trying to push through the ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill, lobbying with lawmakers to get them to agree to the legislation and defending the measure on Sunday morning shows.
Attendees of the baseball game reported the negative reaction to Price’s appearance on social media.

Good thing for Tom Price there's a small pre-game crowd because these boos would be a lot louder pic.twitter.com/KVHmokqpjV— Shamik Trivedi (@ShamaiLama) August 9, 2017
