George H.W. Bush Had A Blast Throwing Out The First Pitch At An Astros Game

Nailed it.

Former President George H.W. Bush threw out the first pitch before Tuesday evening's game between the Houston Astros and Kansas City Royals.

Bush, sporting an orange Astros jersey and matching socks, seemed to have fun taking on his ceremonial duty, testing out grips for different pitches and practicing snapping off a curveball.

Bush, 91, lives in Houston for part of the year. He's a fan of the Astros and has thrown out the first pitch at the stadium before.

In 2001, George W. Bush, threw out one of the most well-remembered first pitches in baseball history when he stood on the mound at Yankee Stadium following the 9/11 attacks and threw a strike down the middle.
