President Donald Trump announced Thursday night that he intended to throw a ceremonial first throw at the empty Yankee Stadium before the August 15 match between New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. A Yankees official has since confirmed that Trump throws the first throw in a match this season is his plan, according to Brendan Kuty from Star-Ledger.
Trump’s announcement came an hour before the Yankees would begin the regular Major League Baseball 2020 season against A citizen of Washington. Anthony Fauci is set to throw the ceremonial first throw in the game.
Trump hasn’t cast the first note since becoming president. In March 2019, Phil Hecken of Uni-Watch outlines the history of the first presidential election, including how the practice came from Howard Taft about 110 years ago.
Trump did attend the World Series match in Washington, DC last year when the Nationals hosted Astros, and he welcomed the Nationals champions to the White House after they won the title.
MLB originally intended to start the season on March 26, but the league was forced to change its plans due to the spread of the corona novel virus. As it stands, MLB intends to play season 60 matches with an expanded postseason – if a pandemic allows for it, this year’s playoffs will feature 16 teams, not 10 typical.
