Baseball is back and the president says he will soon be throwing out the first pitch for the New York Yankees. And, the President should do a much better job from the mound than Dr. Anthony Fauci who threw out the first pitch (sort of) at last night’s Yankee’s game. Trump actually played the game.
Last night, the Yankees topped the defending World Series Champion Nationals 4-1 in D.C.
But, Before the game, Doctor Anthony Fauci threw the ceremonial first pitch and it went wide left and bounced then he went for the fist bump with the catcher who was winded after chasing the ball. Fauci has been the face of leading America’s efforts to combat the coronavirus.
In the nightcap, Dodgers win 8-1 win at home over the rival Giants. Marlins play Philly tonight. President Donald Trump said Thursday he’s agreed to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a New York Yankees game on August 15, marking the first time he’ll take part in the longstanding presidential tradition.
In 2010 he told MTV that “I was captain of the high school baseball team and I was supposed to be a professional baseball player.” He went on to say, “Fortunately, I decided to go into real estate instead. I played first base and I also played catcher. I was a good hitter. I just had a good time.”
A former teacher of the future leader of the free world told Rolling Stone that Trump was once scouted by the Philadelphia Phillies and reportedly the Boston Red Sox took a peek at Trump’s prowess on the diamond as well.
Thankfully Trump was too smart to play baseball professionally and instead became President of the United States.
