Oddly, the fattest President ever... W.H. Taft. He once watched a baseball game and during the 7th inning, he got up to stretch. Others, out of respect, wanted to stretch with Taft.

The Seventh-Inning Stretch is a tradition in Baseball that takes place between the halves of the seventh inning of any game. Fans generally stand up and stretch out their arms, legs, necks, backs, calves, fingers, elbows, and other muscles and sometimes walk around. It is a popular time to get a late-inning snack as well; many teams end beer sales at this point. The stretch also serves as a short break for the players.
There is no halftime in baseball unless you count the seventh inning stretch which only lasts 5 minutes and only occures in A, AA, AAA and MLB baseball.
Once upon a time, in the baseball years of lore, a president was attending a game (can't remember which), in the middle of the seventh inning, he, quite literally, stood to stretch. The other fans, upon seeing the president stand, rose out of respect (respecting a president!!!)...and it has stuck as tradition ever since.
The seventh-inning stretch song has always traditionally been "Take Me Out to the Ball Game", and the Minnesota Twins are no exception. On Sundays however, they add "God Bless America" before singing baseball's anthem.
