A - Herbert Hoover
B - Theodore Roosevelt
C - William Howard Taft
D - Harry S. Truman
Answer: C - William Howard Taft
President William Howard Taft didnít intend to throw the first pitch at a baseball game; in fact, he hadnít originally planned to attend the Opening Day game on April 14, 1910. But after a rough morning in the White House meeting with the 42nd annual Suffragist convention, Taft decided to treat himself. The Washington Nationals were playing against the Philadelphia Athletics. The Senators manager suggested Taft throw out the first pitch, which the President was only too happy to do. Taft came back in 1911 to throw the Opening Day pitch again, and a national tradition was born. The only two sitting presidents who havenít participated are Jimmy Carter, who did throw a first pitch after leaving office, and Donald Trump.
