opening day first pitch

today is opening day of the 2011 baseball season.  i’m a huge baseball fan.  i might have mentioned that last september when i started this blog.  one of the traditions i love about the game is the presidential first pitch on opening day.  it was started by taft 101 years ago.  unfortunately, i just read that obama will not be on the mound today.  kind of a bummer, but check out the full post for more pictures of presidential pitches.  one thing you’ll notice about these pictures is that people used to dress up for games.  i wish we’d go back to that, but i guess sweatpants and tank tops are much more comfortable.   Continue reading
