EXTRA: JFK, LBJ on hand as Sox win!

Just a little video snippet I stumbled across in my search to shift my mind away from the continued agony of our current president-elect, while also coping with the fact that baseball is no longer being played until March, with the coming of the World Baseball Classic tourney that will conclude at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

I’d like to think this could be a bipartisan snippet, although I’m sure there will be some crackpot upset that John F. Kennedy got his moment in the sun throwing out the first pitch of the season on Opening Day at Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C., in 1961 – where the Senators began their season against the Chicago White Sox.

IS ANYBODY STILL carrying a grudge that it wasn’t “President Nixon” elected eight years earlier than he wound up being in reality?

For what it’s worth, three White Sox pitchers combined to defeat former White Sox pitcher Dick Donovan in a 4-3 game on April 10.

The White Sox that year finished fourth place, ahead of the ninth place Senators. And the rest of baseball was absorbed by all the attention paid to Mantle/Maris in New York and whether either could top “The Babe” in home runs for the season.
