Orlando Palmeiro pinch hit for Astros pitcher Brad Lidge and grounded out to Uribe for the final out of the 2005 World Series.
The first U.S. president to throw a ceremonial ball before a World Series game was Woodrow Wilson, who attended the 1915 World Series in Philadelphia.

Well, for game 7 I believe it will be Toby Harrah.
That was Christie Matthewson, who did so in the 1905 Series.

The first baseball playoff to be called a "World Series" was the 1903 series between the Boston Red Sox and the Pittsburgh Pirates. In the first game, the starting pitchers were Deacon Phillipe and Cy Young. Since the Red Sox were the home team, and the visiting team bats first, Cy Young would have been the first person to throw a pitch in a game that would be considered part of a World Series.
Shoeless Joe Jackson in my opinion did not throw the 1919 World Series. When you hit .375 and one third of your hits are for extra bases, i don't even know how you can speculate that he tried to throw it. He also had the most RBI's (6), and the most Runs scored (5) by the White Sox. Jackson also had the only homerun throughout the 1919 World Series. So sports experts and any person in general can think what they want, but in my opinion he did not try to throw the 1919 World Series.
Since the tradition was began by Taft in 1910, Jimmy Carter was the only president who never threw out an opening day pitch . He did throw out the first pitch at a World Series game in 1079.
from 50-80 depending on the pitcher
The first President to throw out a first pitch in Major League Baseball was William Howard Taft in 1910. So none of the earlier Presidents did. Since then, every US President has tossed a pitch in either the All Star Game, the World Series, or the first game of the baseball season.
As far as the World Series goes, that was Christy Mathewson of the New York Giants in 1905. The Giants won the Series, 4 games to 1, over the Philadelphia Athletics. Not only did Mathewson win three games, he pitched three shutouts. He is the only pitcher in World Series history to throw three shutouts in one Series.
