Picture of the Day: President Bush at the World Series

In the days leading up to the Presidential Inauguration, the Baseball Continuum will be posting pictures celebrating the relation between the presidency and baseball. These are not meant to be an endorsement of either side of the political aisle nor the policies of any of the men featured within, merely a celebration of the close connection between America’s leader and America’s game.

Before Game 3 of the 2001 World Series, the first game of the World Series in a New York still clearing wreckage from Ground Zero, George W. Bush took the mound to throw out the first pitch.
