Opening Day Shots: Joe Biden Rode the Amtrak All the Way to Camden Yards

Who says politics and sports don't go hand in hand? George W. Bush and Joe Biden throwing out first pitches on the same day....hallelujah.

Interesting to note how Biden decided to wear a mitt during his ceremonial first pitch. Is there really a need for a glove? Call me crazy, but I don't think any balls will be put into play on the ceremonial first pitch. Perhaps Biden just feels more comfortable throwing with a glove on his hand or maybe he just wanted to look like an actual baseball player. Who knows?

Either way, Biden is nice opening act to next week when President Obama will throw out the first pitch at Nationals Park.

Political science students, rejoice.
