Former President (and Texas Rangers owner) George W. Bush attended last night’s game between the Rangers and Chicago White Sox, and what a memorable visit it was. Bush was nearly clocked by a foul ball hit by Adrian Beltre.
White Sox catcher AJ Pierzynski tried to make the catch, almost falling into Bush’s lap in the process.
Update: Video after after the jump!
Pierzynski told ESPN.com:
“I just told him just because he was the President doesn’t mean I won’t jump on top of him,” Pierzynski said. “Him and his wife got a good chuckle out of that one.”
The entire exchange was caught by the Fox Sports cameras. You can watch the video, below.
