Baseball finally starts on Thursday!
White House coronavirus member Dr. Anthony Fauci will throw out the first pitch at the New York Yankees/Washington Nationals game on Thursday.
The MLB season has a late start, much to my disappointment, due to the coronavirus.
The Nationals surprised everyone with their World Series win in 2019. They were awful and dead last in May before a resurgence that led to their victory over the Houston Astros (sorry, Kemberlee!).
(In my opinion, the victory was super sweet because star Bryce Harper left the team for division rival Philadelphia Phillies. I don’t like Harper so HA!)
Anyway, here’s the announcement:

Fauci has become a star during the coronavirus pandemic, but Fauci is a huge baseball fan. He recently wore a Nationals mask, which he donated to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
I see people complaining in the replies. I see their point, especially about the fact that people are unemployed and kids cannot go to school.
But in all honesty, baseball allows us to return to some kind of normalcy. I’m sure the social distancing and hygiene rules will happen so I’m not worried.
Am I biased because baseball is literally my life? Probably.
I like the one suggestion of having the doctors and nurses throw out the pitch. I’m sure people are mad because no one chose President Donald Trump.
Meh. Just play ball.DONATE
