MLB: Obama to throw out ceremonial 1st pitch

Associated Press

WASHINGTON The Washington Nationals say President Barack Obama will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the team's opening day game April 5 against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The team says Monday it will mark the 100th anniversary of the first time a president tossed an opening day first pitch William Howard Taft did it on April 14, 1910.

It also will be the first time Obama attends a game at Nationals Park.
