Will Trump be afraid to throw out the first pitch in the baseball World Series?

Looks like the Washington Nationals are headed to the WS. It will be the first time since 1933 a Washington team, the old Senators, has played in it. Unlike previous presidents, Trump has been too much of a coward to throw out the first pitch for any Washington games since he has been dictator wannabe. Just like he was too much of a coward to serve in the military during the draft years. I think he has been avoiding it because he knows his appearance will be met with a deafening chorus of boos.

14. Are Nationals fans particularly fond of kidneys?

Yeah, the President will find someplace to be about 1,000 miles away from Nationals Stadium that weekend.

29. Hell, he can't walk worth a damn . . . .

Add a bulletproof vest to his back brace, elevator shoes and Depends, and you'd have some athletic comedy gold, I have to think.

I wonder if his mom would allow him to throw the first pitch. People would be more polite to him I think.

21. For the season opener along with other important games, especially the World Series.

Presidents often throw out the first pitch to start the season in Washington. I think Bush Jr threw out the first pitch of the 2001 World Series in New York. That was just a few weeks after 9-11.

37. Yes..

It was the 3rd game, not the first, since that took place in Arizona.

Somewhat famously now, Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter came upon Bush prior to the game, and asked him if he had practiced his pitching. He then assured him that if he bounced the ball, the crowd would boo him. That sent W. scurrying into the interior practice area under the stands to do just that.

He's a fucking joke. He has no right to such an honor and basically, he has no aptitude to do such a thing.

The World Series can be attended by anyone, not just dipshits who like him.

25. Absolutely

Every single President since Taft has thrown at least one ceremonial first pitch at a major league baseball game......except trump.

He knows he might be booed, or even worse...laughed at.

He can't face either of those things. He's a coward.

31. It's a tradition not a requirement!

The Nationals should invite a wounded veteran who is also a D.C. native...in reality it's the people of D.C. who have done more for the team then Trump has ever done!!!

Sometimes changing a tradition is a good thing....

it will be called the best pitch in the history of baseball.

Yeah the boos....plus he throws like a girl. But I've seen those girls and women throw baseballs and they can really kick ass, so I retract that and just say can't hold a ball in those tiny hands of his.
