The First Fan
In keeping with tradition, President George W. Bush threw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals' home opener last Thursday--95 years to the day after William Howard Taft became the first commander in chief to make an Opening Day toss. ( Taft threw out the first pitch in the Washington Senators' 3-0 win over the Philadelphia A's at Griffith Stadium.) Taft, however, wasn't the first president to attend a major league game. Who was?
b. Benjamin Harrison
c. William McKinley
