Obama's first pitch: Classic

Not the pitch itself -- President Obama's ceremonial first pitch before the Phillies-Nationals game Monday was brutal. Very high and very outside. It would have sailed over a left-handed batter's head.

But what was classic was this: He took the mound in a Nationals jacket, holding his glove in his hands. As he reached the mound, he took a cap out of the glove and, with a great flourish, snapped it open and placed it on his head.

And it was a black White Sox cap.
