Baseball season has officially arrived. As fans crowd to stadiums throughout the country, the Washington Nationals are having the first pitch thrown out by those who are the glue to our society – our first responders.
While our police officers are under attack from liberal politicians and their cohorts in the Black Lives Matter movement, it is terrific to see them get this honor. This is the last Opening Day of Obama’s Presidency, but instead of choosing President Mom Jeans to throw out the first pitch, the Washington Nationals are standing with police officers! Hah – Obama’s hometown team didn’t even want him!
Not only was Obama snubbed by every MLB team this final opening day as President, it shows quite the contrast to George W. Bush being welcomed with open arms to MLB Opening Day at the Texas Ranger’s Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas. The Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2. And the best image of the day was The Big Show meeting former President Bush. They snapped a picture together, which The Big Show posted to Instagram:
At the Nats home opener against the Marlins, Officer David McKeown and Officer Jesse Hempen will have the honor of tossing out the first ball. The two were injured while responding to a domestic call in which Ashley Guidon was killed. Guidon was on her very first shift as a police officer when her life was taken.
After the first pitch, there will be a moment of silence to honor first responders who have been killed in the line of duty since January 2015. Being grateful is a terrific way to start the season. Watch the video below honoring Officer Ashley Guidon.
