The Washington Nationals invited President-elect Joe Biden to throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Opening Day of the 2021 season.
"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," the team announced Saturday night.
The "long-standing tradition" has been absent of late.
President Donald Trump becomes only the second sitting chief executive to not throw out a first pitch on Opening Day at a Major League Baseball game since William Howard Taft began the tradition in 1910.
Fellow one-term President Jimmy Carter was the other.
The Nationals are scheduled to open the season at Nationals Park on April 1 against the New York Mets.
