Presidental First Pitch

Hello Readers,

 

Which president started the tradition of throwing out the first pitch during a baseball game?

 

William Taft started the tradition of the Presidential “first pitch” of baseball season. The event took place on April 4, 1910, during an opening day game between the Washington Senators and the Philadelphia Athletics.
