Donald Trump

Citing his focus on the coronavirus, Trump says he won't throw out 1st pitch at Yankee Stadium next month


"I've agreed, Randy Levine's a great friend of mine from the Yankees, he asked me to throw out the first pitch," Trump said from the podium on Thursday.


On Sunday the president cited multiple reasons for the change in plan, including scheduling conflicts due to his "strong focus" on the coronavirus pandemic and the economy.

Trump received major backlash from New York City politicians when he initially announced he would be throwing out the first pitch.


"We all deserve better than a careless major league baseball organization that consistently ignores the surrounding community while pandering to an unapologetic white supremacist like Donald Trump."
