President Trump announced Sunday he wouldn’t be throwing out the opening pitch for the New York Yankees next month as he had planned, citing meetings and other work related to the U.S.’s COVID-19 outbreak.

In a tweet, Trump said that he would plan to throw out the first pitch at a game later in the MLB’s season, which began last week.

“Because of my strong focus on the China Virus, including scheduled meetings on Vaccines, our economy and much else, I won’t be able to be in New York to throw out the opening pitch for the @Yankees on August 15th. We will make it later in the season!” he tweeted.

  1. In all probability the truth is that he didn’t want to be anywhere near the Marxist loving pieces of garbage . They betrayed their country and bthey betrayed the people who pay them – that would be us the FORMER fans.

    Had they done that when people were in the stands, I will bet at least half for the walked out!

  2. To JerseyJew: Who betrayed what country? Who are you talking about? And when were you last at Yankee Stadium? At $230 per ticket, $16 for a beer, I have not been there in years, except for once on someone else’s 2,300 dimes.
