President Kennedy Receives American League Baseball Pass

Apr. 6, 1962 - President Kennedy received his American League baseball pass today. He gave a sympathetic chuckle when told that the player who caught his opening-game pitch last year did not stick in the majors this year. He was Pete Daley, a Washington catcher. The American League president, Joe Cronin (center), presented the pass. It entitles the “President and party” to attend any league game. Kennedy expects to use it next Monday and throw out the first ball when Washington opens with Detroit in the new stadium in Washington before a crowd of 50,000.
