President Barack Obama will throw out first pitch at Nationals game

compiled from staff, wire, MLB and Nationals info

Barack Obama will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Washington Nationals home opener, marking the 100th anniversary of a presidential pitch to start the season.

Ohioan William Howard Taft first did it on April 14, 1910.  This will be the 48th time a president has made an opening-day pitch in the nation’s capital.

The Washington Nationals will open at home on April 5 against the National League champion Philadelphia Phillies.

Commissioner Bud Selig said, “I am proud that President Obama will continue the long presidential tradition of throwing out the first pitch of opening day in Washington, D.C.”

President Obama will be throwing to a catcher who is experienced in catching presidents. Nationals catcher Ivan Rodriguez is a 14-time All-Star and when he played for the Texas Rangers, he twice caught ceremonial pitches from President George W. Bush, a former Rangers owner. This will be President Obama’s first time in attendance at Nationals Park.

Barack Obama threw out the first pitch at last year’s All-Star game in St. Louis, wearing a White Sox jacket. An interesting note is that the Nationals will be playing host to the White Sox this season for a three-game series, June 18-20 and everybody wonders who the president will be rooting for?
