From The Onion Sports Section

Running down a list of memorable "Presidential First Pitches", The Onion writes about the highlights. My favorites:
1944: FDR laboriously rolls his wheelchair out to the pitching mound, then stuns the crowd with a 100 mph fastball.

1833: Although the popularization of baseball is still decades off, Andrew Jackson begins the tradition of welcoming in the spring by hurling things at Indians.
