Former President George W. Bush, who just happens to be 71-years-old, threw out the first pitch at Game 5 of the World Series tonight.
And like his last first pitch just weeks after 9/11, this one was a rope:

He’s really good at this!
George W. Bush throws the best first pitches of any president in American history. The righty has pinpoint control, hits corners, good velo

“Badass” is right:
No matter your politics, you have to admit George W Bush, 71, was a badass throwing out the 1st pitch, tonight. ⚾️ pic.twitter.com/jy2cFCq1Do

Here’s a graph of other ceremonial first pitches, with Bush right there in the strike zone (LOL. 50 Cent was worse than Obama? And check out Charlie Crist):

Well, it wasn’t quite as good as 2001, but still awesome:
Second-best ceremonial first pitch I've seen George W. Bush throw at a World Series. A little less pressure than last time, I'd imagine.
