JFK Gets A.L. Season Pass from Cronin

Apr. 5, 1963 - President Kennedy today received a season pass to American League baseball games and reported that his arm was in good shape for the opening game on Monday. The President, following custom, will throw out the first ball when the Washington Senators and the Baltimore Orioles play at Washington Stadium. Joe Cronin, the president of the American League, and other baseball officials called on Mr. Kennedy at the White House for the traditional ceremony of presenting the pass. The group also brought a gift for Mrs. Kennedy — an antique Rockingham dessert service. Cronin presented the 17-piece service to the President for Mrs. Kennedy. It was made in England in 1820.
