Baseball Season Begins!


Ah, the smell of hot dogs, the sound of bat hitting ball, ah, the thrill of the grass, yes, baseball is back. Here is an old opening day photograph of the first President ever to throw a ceremonial first pitch to open the season.

OK fans out there [leave a comment with your answer] :

  1. Who is the President pictured above?
  2. From what author did I get the "thrill of the grass" phrase?

1) Howard K. Taft -- the 27th president.

2) W.P. Kinsella (???)
