Dr. Fauci’s Pitch Was Distanced From Home Plate

Throwing out the first pitch of the 2020 Major League Baseball season was Dr. Anthony Fauci. The ceremonial pitch was at Nationals Park for their game against the New York Yankees on Thursday.

And just like the Trump response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the throw was a bit erratic.

Luckily, Dr. Fauci is not looking to quit his day job as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Fauci, like all other medical experts, has been advocating for months for Americans to practice social distancing when leaving the home — basically, maintaining a space of six feet away from others at all times when possible. It’s always heartening to see someone who preaches such advice follow it, even if it is with his pitch location.

Also newsworthy of the Nationals/Yankees game, all players took a knee before the playing of the National Anthem.
