Today in Baseball History, April 14, 1910

105 years ago today, on Opening Day of the big league baseball season between the Philadelphia Athletics and Washington Senators, baseball's very first ceremonial first pitch ever thrown out by a United States President was tossed by President William Howard Taft.

Walter Johnson, the star pitcher of the Senators, caught the ceremonial first pitch, and had President Taft sign the ball.

Here's a list of  Presidential first-time Baseball stuff.

Play Ball!
