WASHINGTON (AP) - Barack Obama plans to throw out his first pitch as president when he visits St. Louis next month.


Obama will offer the ceremonial first pitch at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 14, which will be broadcast on FOX.
The White House says MLB's focus on community service matches with Obama's service initiative this summer, known as United We Serve.

Yet another reason for me not to watch the All-Star Game, which is a nothing more than a popularity contest itself.

Awesome! At least I'll watch the beginning of that worthless game now.
