The Washington Nationals didn’t waste any time reaching out to President-elect Joe Biden.
Almost immediately after Biden’s victory speech in Delaware on Saturday night, the Nationals invited the newly elected President out to throw out the first pitch on opening day next season.

“We look forward to hosting President-elect Biden on Opening Day of the 2021 season,” the team’s statement read. “We’re excited to continue the long-standing tradition of sitting Presidents throwing out the first pitch at the home of the national pastime in our nation’s capital.”
It is worth noting that President Donald Trump declined the Nationals’ invitation to throw out the first pitch in 2017.
We’ll have to wait and see if Biden accepts the Nationals’ invitation.
