Best Answer

Baseball history reports that President William Howard Taft was the first president to throw out the ceremonial "first pitch" in the Major Leagues. He did so to open the 1910 season in Washington when the Senators hosted the Philadelphia Athletics to start the season. By the way, Walter Johnson shut out the A's 1-0 with a one-hitter on opening day, however, the A's recovered and went on to win the American League and beat the Chicago Cubs in the World Series.
