Pity Rob Butcher

President George W. Bush will throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the Reds/Cubs game on Opening Day at Great American Ball Park.

Details are still being confirmed, but it appears Bush has agreed to participate in response to an invitation by his close friend, and Reds majority owner, Bob Castellini.

Opening Day is always a hectic time for Butcher and everyone associated with the Reds organization. But, recent visits to the ballpark by VP Dick Cheney and former President Bush have made the atmosphere in and around Great American Ball Park a bit tenuous.

Can you say, "pins and needles"?
