Obama’s First Pitch Tonight ,photo

The most powerful man of us President Barack Obama will be throwing out the first pitch at the 2009 MLB All Star Game.People are expecting a powerful pitch from the powerful president.

In 2005, his first year as a senator from Illinois, Obama threw out a first pitch at a White Sox playoff. The devout Sox fan admitted afterwards that he was feeling the pressure.

“Had I thrown a one-hop, I think, whatever aspirations I had, they would have shown that clip over and over again,” he said in an interview with the Springfield State Journal-Register that year.

“I was more nervous than I was before the Democratic National Convention” the year before, he said.

Back in 2001, not long after the horrors of 9/11, George Bush threw a perfect strike in Yankee Stadium before Gam3 of the World Series. This was, almost undoubtedly, one of the high points of his 8-year term in office.Now hopefully President Obama can do White Sox fans and America proud tonight by piping one similarly
