President Trump will not throw the ceremonial first pitch at the Washington Nationals opening day, Politico reported. The Nats said the team extended an invitation but the White House declined, citing scheduling conflicts.
Every president since William Howard Taft in 1919, except Jimmy Carter, has thrown an opening day first pitch at some point in their presidency.
