Bush Rules White House Tee Ball Game

Joined by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, George W. Bush on Sunday hosted Tee Ball on the South Lawn, a day of spirited youth baseball featuring the children of active-duty military personnel. Former New York Yankees All-Star Bernie Williams served as first base coach while Peter Pace, Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, coached at third. (Observers noted that Karl Rove appeared to be directing Pace's actions for the entire game.)

The White House reports that Bush went 3 for 4, with a single, triple and home run and that First Lady Laura Bush took the happy president to Baskin-Robbins afterwards for a celebratory double-scoop cone.
