George W. Bush becomes the eighth President of the United States to attend a World Series game and the first since Dwight D. Eisenhower to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Wearing a New York Fire Department windbreaker in honor of the heroes of the September 11 attacks, the president walks to the mound by himself, gives a thumbs up, and throws a perfect strike much to the delight of the stadium faithful. In Game Three of the 2001 World Series, the Yankees win 2 - 1 over the Diamondbacks, behind strong pitching by Roger Clemens and Mariano Rivera.
