It appears President Donald Trump has plans of his own to throw out a first pitch after Dr. Anthony Fauci did so Thursday night at Nationals Park.
President Trump announced during a White House COVID-19 press conference that Yankees president Randy Levine invited him to throw out a first pitch for New York when it takes on the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 15.
“Randy Levine, he’s a great friend of mine from the Yankees,” Trump said, via CBS News. “He asked me to throw out the first pitch. And I think I’m doing that on Aug. 15 at Yankee Stadium…”

According to ESPN’s Marly Rivera, the Yankees confirmed the President indeed will throw out a first pitch “at some point this season.”
So, now we just wait and see if Trump will be on the mound prior to Boston and New York’s Aug. 15 game.
