Clinton Makes It Over the Plate

President Bill Clinton threw out the ceremonial first pitch on April 2, 1996, at Camden Yards in Baltimore. Located just up the road from Washington, Baltimore sometimes hosted presidents throwing out the first pitch in the period before the Washington Nationals became the capital's latest team. Clinton was the first president to throw from the pitcher's mound -- and make it over the plate.
