Biden will not throw customary first pitch at Washington National’s opening game

President Joe Biden has decided to end a longstanding tradition of American presidents — throwing the ceremonial first pitch on Thursday’s opening day at Nationals Park — according to a statement from the baseball team.

“We look forward to welcoming President Biden to Nationals Park in the future,” a team spokesperson told The Washington Post. A reason for the decision was not given.

The tradition of the president throwing the first pitch of the Major League Baseball season began with President William Howard Taft in 1910. Ban Johnson, American League President, thought the president’s appearance would boost attendance, leading to a record turnout of 12,000 fans.

ESPN noted that Franklin D. Roosevelt holds the records for most presidential first pitches thrown while in office, totaling at 11. Jimmy Carter did not throw a first pitch while in office, but did after his presidency.

Former President Harry Truman was ambidextrous and kept the fans guessing which arm he would use. On Opening Day in 1950, he threw out two first balls, one with each hand.

With the exception of former President Donald Trump, every president has thrown a first pitch in Washington when the city has had a team.

Biden previously threw the first pitch at a 2009 Baltimore Orioles game as vice president.

The Nationals baseball team returned to Washington in 2005. The team was previously named the Expos and played in Montreal, Canada.

Biden’s travel schedule has remained limited since his presidency. He has only held one solo press conference since his inauguration.

  1. I basically make about 💰$8,000-💰$12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it

      1. Exactly right he’s a friggin communist working for red China communist party 👹👹👹👹🤬🤬🤬

  2. Who gives a flying F*CK if Biden throws out the first pitch. He probably would throw himself face first onto the ground. Hey thats a good idea. Let him throw himself off a cliff !

      1. Come on, Ya’ll. Be nice to the “Dementia Don”. Isn’t his fault that his dementia makes him useless without his teleprompter and his handlers who hustle him offstage whenever they think he is about to put his foot in his mouth.

    1. They say that the White House is dark at night Biden must go to bed at 6:00 and would not be up to throw the first ball at the game. Maybe he is afraid that he might get booed or is afraid to be in public.

      1. The mound is to tall, he would trip walking up it. Put a batter in there and maybe they would take his crown of Joe the dic

  3. Who cares what that loser in the White House does? I sure don’t….I don’t even acknowledge him as being a President–hell he can’t even lead a pack of well trained dogs.

  4. They should have Kamala the queen of balls throw that pitch it was what got her where she is today Biden could do better than Fauci the lot can’t get anything over the plate

  5. I just wonder exactly how long you people are actually going to put up with this farce before the killing starts !!!!
    can’t you fools see that our country has been taken over by criminals ??? PLEASE, WAKE UP AMERICA !!!!

  6. He is a disgrace to our country and always will be. Every country is laughing at him. He s a old fool and crazy one. I bet he doesnt know what he s signing most or all the time. I hope he hurts his self what ever he doing. or tries to do. He is not my president and never will be. He s proud that he is destroying America and all we stand for. He s a scum ball like all democrats.

  7. Thank you for funny responses .it is a sad day when people have to say they don’t care about the Shill in the White House. He defiantly is enjoying his demented self importance.Then there is Dr Jill puke

    1. So called “Dr. Jill “should be very ashamed of herself for allowing the Dimdumbs to use and HUMILIATE her husband this way . She could put a stop to all this crap going on; simply by admitting that they rigged the Presidential election. We all know that she knows there is NO WAY Possible that her husband WON HONESTLY NOR LEGALLY.

  8. Don’t forget that if Biden is out as president then Harris takes over {from the frying pan into the fire) and then Pelosi is waiting in the wings to get her title.

    1. Yep, then we would need to vote ALL of them OUT in future years. Trouble is there are far too many IDIOTS that will keep voting for them. Voters need to study the CONSTITUTION as provided on line FREE OF CHARGE at Hillsdale College. After doing so, then they need to pay attention to the words spoken or printed by the “politicians”.

      Far too many voters simply vote straight “political party”. This is SAD!!!

    2. No Harris wouldn’t take over; when they would all be out of OUR Capital if the JUDGEs would do their job. Find them all GUILTY of FRAUD And TRESON. Take ALL of them out At ONCE!!!!!

  9. Don’t fall for the scam posted here by R T and others. Read the reviews. Why does American Digest condone this on their forum is strange, given how much they like to censor comments.

  10. who would even think about asking that Boob to throw
    out the first pitch.?First of all he would’nt even know what
    he was doing there in the first place..Then there is the other
    problem of remembering how to get off the field with a map
    that Psaki drew for him..

  11. People, please do not lower yourselves to name calling. I, like many of you, do not consider mr biden my President. He cannot help his mental or physical health. Respect his age, (you don’t have to respect him). It is sickening to see what others are doing as they take advantage of his limitations for their own good. We ALL need to pray that our country, AMERICA, can with stand the corruption and remain the strong God fearing country we love. God will get us through all of this. Remember, nobody ever said life would be easy. He gives us the strength to deal with what ever comes our way. The best thing we can do is PRAY and follow whatever path God gives us. He has the final say in how things will go.

    Please God give us strength and guide us to do whatever you have in mind to bring America back to the great country she was.

    1. it is not his fault that he is mentally unstable nor the fact that he is old.
      but his family and democrats are using him like a puppet, and practicing senior abuse
      so we do not need a person who is senile fragile and old as president
      we need a leader like Trump

      1. Mina,
        It’s like I have said before “Biden is the Democrats “TROJAN HORSE” so if anything goes wrong, Biden gets the blame for it and the real culprit gets off scot free”.

    2. Biden is going give this Country to the Devil and
      the Devil will destroy it for him then God will begin
      to punish all of us for allowing that evil freedom
      hating nightmare Biden to do it to this Nation.

  12. Biden is one big sissy. He will do anything just to stay put in his/
    our house. Hope he doesn’t last long!A real jerk. Not my president!

  13. IT’s TIME TO IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

    Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

  14. THE MAN IS USELESS! STRAIGHT, FLIPPING IDIOT! NO MIND LEFT! WHAT THE HELL IS OUR CONTRY THINKING?

  15. WHY IS BIDEN EVEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE? HE IS AN OLD OLD MAN WITH DEMENTIA AND DOESNT LEAVE HOME WITHOUT MOMMY OR SOME IDIOT DEM HOLDING HIS HAND SO HE DOESNT FALL DOWN. HE ISNT THINKING CLEARLY, HE IS INSANE AND PUTTING US ALL IN DANGER. I WANT TO SUE HIM BECAUSE OF THE DANGER HE HAS PUT MY HEALTH IN. HE DOESN’T EVEN GET A HAND FULL OF PEOPLE OUT TO LUSTEN TO HIM BUT 81M VOTED FOR HIM? HECK NO! AND WITCHY HARRIS? COME ON MAN, 2 PEOPLE FROM HER HOMETOWN CAME OUT TO WELCOME HER. BUT HOW MANY VOTES DID SHE STEAL? THIS IS WAY TOO OBVIOUS AND THOSE WHO SAID TRUMP LOST ARE HAVING SECKND THOUGHTS NOW THOUGH AREN’T THEY? STOLLEN OUT FROM UNDER TRUMP. THIS IS WHY PELOSI WANTS TO PUT A GAG ON PEOPLE CALLING IT A RIGGED ELECTION. EVERYONE IS FIGURING IT OUT NOW. THIS WAS A STOLEN ELECTION. TRUMP STILL MY PRESIDENT.
