Organizing for Action attempted to ruin baseball’s opening day with a photo of a mom-jeans-clad President Obama. But nothing can destroy America’s pastime! The Washington Nationals made opening day even more special. The first pitch was thrown by Medal of Honor recipient, former staff sergeant, Clint Romesha.
Former SSG Romesha will throw out the first pitch at today's Nats game. Here's a reminder of who Clint is > http://t.co/OoyEqbQZBI

Tapper’s article on former SSG Romesha is truly a must-read. As Twitchy reported, Jake Tapper fought to have veterans flown in for Clint Romesha’s Medal of Honor ceremony.
Twitter users and Nationals fans honor former SSG Romesha as well.
We would have loved to be at @Nationals Park to give Staff Sergeant and MOH recipient Clint Romesha a quilt after he throws the 1st pitch.

Medal of Honor winner Clint Romesha gets the biggest ovation of the day as he takes the mound for the first pitch.
