Last year, El Jefe himself welcomed baseball back to Washington, this year, Vice President Dick Cheney will do the honors at RFK on Tuesday. No word on if this is because the President was unable to throw a strike on Monday in Cincinnati, or because the Mayor declined the honor, but I’m wondering, will Cheney throw a screwball? Will he file down his spikes Ty Cobb style? Or will he opt for the plain old soft toss? Perhaps the Taft-ian throw the ball from the seats to the pitcher?
We’ll find out next Tuesday.
