    William Howard Taft, twenty-seventh President of the United States

  • Dude

    Correct Anant.

    The more popular retort that has been presented by countless baseball historians gives sole credit to the 27th President of the United States, William Howard Taft. One of America’s less memorable leaders, Taft was an obese man, tipping the scales at over 300 pounds, and probably spent more fervor on following his favorite game of baseball than he did on running the country. Also credited with being the first U.S. President to throw out the first pitch while Taft attended the Opening Day game against the Washington Senators and Philadelphia Athletics on April 14, 1910 at Griffith Stadium.

    You’re today’s winner.
