The MLB approaches the new US president shortly after Joe Biden’s election victory to invite him to open the 2021 season with the first pitch.
The new US president Joe Biden is to throw the first pitch before the Washington Nationals’ opening game in the new season of Major League Baseball (MLB).
The capital club announced on Twitter that Donald Trump’s successor has been invited to continue the tradition on April 1, 2021 against the New York Mets.
However, Trump never threw a first pitch. This year he had first pitched to the New York Yankees for the ceremony and then cancelled it.
Significantly, the Nationals chose the renowned US violinist Anthony Fauci before the season ended.
The last US president to throw a “Ceremonial First Pitch” was Barack Obama 2010 in the Nationals Park. After that, only the two former incumbents George Bush and George W. Bush came into play.
