Former President George H.W. Bush Throws Out First Pitch

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. There is no stopping George H. W. Bush. The ex-president, who jumped out of planes long after leaving the Oval Office, is now 91 and in a wheelchair and wearing a neck brace - none of which mattered. He rolled onto a baseball diamond before a Houston Astros game. And sitting a few feet from home plate, he threw the first pitch. The left-handed throw was not a strike but surely was the most spirited pitch of the season. You're listening to MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
