Batter up! Obama pops in on Little League game
WASHINGTON (AP) Put down the juice box and lace up your sneakers. President Barack Obama is pinch-hitting for Little League.
The president paid a surprise visit Monday to Washington's Friendship Park, where a handful of teams were warming up for the big game. Stepping onto the field in a tie but no jacket, Obama shook hands with the players and posed for photos with each team.
"What's going on people? How's it going?" the president said, before sidling up to a young girl whose arm was in a sling. "Hey, what happened? Were you sliding?"
Shocked parents reached for their smartphones to snap a quick photo, but not all of their kids were as impressed. Some held back, unsure of who Obama was, as their parents tried to lure them back onto the infield to join the president.
"Daddy, let's just play," said one young boy, pulling his father by the hand.
The "pitcher in chief" even got a chance to try out his arm, tossing the ball from near the pitcher's mound to 10-year-old Danny Ringel, who plays for the Tigers.
The White House notes the visit comes before Obama is scheduled to travel to Cooperstown, N.Y., on Thursday to speak at the Baseball Hall of Fame. That visit is focused on boosting U.S. exports, including tourism.

If I were on his staff, I’d have recommended that he not ride a bike or touch a baseball for the duration. He’s pressing his luck with a basketball too!
so did he get picked by the team in the first round ???
It would have been really funny, if they had all pointed at Obama and shouted, “Stranger! Stranger!”
He’s about to step with his left leg, then throw. The CLASSIC “girl throw”!!!
Crash Davis: You be cocky and arrogant, even when you’re getting beat. That’s the secret. You gotta play this game with fear and arrogance.
Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: Right. Fear and ignorance.
Crash Davis: [exasperated] No. You hayseed. It’s arrogance not ‘ignorance.’
Gaydar alert! Gaydar alert! Mine is pegging!!!!!
I want to quote Tanner from The Bad News Bears, but I also don’t want to get booted from FR. Rats!
It doesn’t worry me that he throws like a girl...what worry’s me is he governs like a communist.
Nice! For the record I was thinking “and now a girl?!” and nothing else whatsoever!
A guy enters a Roman Catholic Church confessional booth.
He tells the priest, “Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. Last night, I beat the hell out of an Obama supporter.”
The priest says, “My son, I’m here to forgive your sins, not to discuss your community service
I *am* a girl and if I pitched like that, I’d die of shame.
I’ve seen more masculine *underhand* pitching.
I think you demean girl softball players. Yes - girls who are not into sports, will pitch exactly like Barack Obama. but it is an insult to the more serious gals to infer they pitch like Obama.
Obama is just effeminate, gangly, and awkward. He hasn’t got a single athletic muscle in his body.
None of the girls I know throw like that!
“Classic girl throw”. Every single person, including you, who sees that knows exactly what is meant. If a girl playing softball throws like that, she won’t play for long. I didn’t demean anyone.
LOL! Good one.
Hover your mouse over the pic for a surprise!
