TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made a dramatic entrance at his son's high school baseball game Tuesday night — in a state police helicopter.

Christie and his wife Mary Pat landed on an adjacent field just before the game between Delbarton High School and St. Joseph's of Montvale in Montvale.

The governor's oldest son, Andrew, is the starting catcher for Delbarton.

The Christies watched until the 5th inning. Play was stopped briefly while the helicopter took off.

The governor had no public schedule on Tuesday, but had a dinner meeting in Princeton with a delegation of Iowans who tried — unsuccessfully — to convince him to run for president.

Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak says the helicopter is used occasionally, but adds the governor has been judicious in limiting its use.
