Fox Sports Catches Former President George W. Bush Almost Getting Hit By Foul Ball

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.
