When you have a good arm, you have a good arm. At the College World Series, The Great Man threw out the first pitch. As usual, he was right on target.
“…By his own admission, former President George W. Bush’s fastball isn’t what it once was. “Threw a fastball, but it looked like a changeup,” Bush said Saturday afternoon at TD Ameritrade Park. “The catcher could have caught it barehanded.” For the record, Tanner Lubach used a catcher’s mitt to grab the ceremonial first pitch of the 2011 College World Series, the first held at the new ballpark in downtown Omaha. But Lubach had a kinder assessment of Bush’s toss. “He just threw a nice fastball right on the outside corner,” said the 18-year-old Lubach. A little after 1 p.m. Saturday, Bush walked onto the field to raucous cheers from the 22,000-plus on hand for the CWS opener between North Carolina and Vanderbilt….”

Baseball needs you. You’re our only hope!
