Trump Ends 109-Year-Old Presidential Tradition

Trump did not throw out the first pitch this year. Sad!

"Now This" takes note that Donald Trump will not throw out the first pitch for the 2019 baseball season, breaking a tradition that has lasted over a century.

I heard that Trump was supposed to throw out the first pitch at the Nationals' game, but his bone spurs were acting up again. ⚾️

I find it immensely amusing that Trump is too scared to throw out the first pitch at a baseball game

mister president sir, at which game will you be throwing the first pitch? oh that's right, you're the first president in over 100 years not to throw a first pitch because you can't deal with having tens of thousands of people booing the Snowflake In Chief. hashtag sad
