Dr. Fauci Throws First Pitch on MLB Opening Day, Completely Misses (Video)

Dr. Anthony Fauci throws the ceremonial first pitch prior to the opening game of the 2020 MLB Season on Thursday (July 23) at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.

The opening day game was played between the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals and no fans will be in the crowd at games this season.

Fauci received some assistance from Nationals pitcher Sean Doolittle while getting ready to throw out the first pitch, which didn’t go anywhere near home plate.

If you didn’t know, Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a role he has held since 1984. He serves on the White House’s coronavirus task force and he is helping in the fight against the virus.

Fauci grew up in Brooklyn as a fan of the Yankees, but he is now a Nationals fan as he lives in D.C.

It was recently reported that an MLB team will likely be changing their name.
