Jim Vance's Ceremonial First Pitch




    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    As part of Black Heritage Night at Nationals Park, our own Jim Vance threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Nationals faced the Diamondbacks in the second game of their three-game series Wednesday night.

    Jim threw a high-strike to Tyler Clippard. I can't see the radar gun, but I'm sure Clippard had to shake his hand out once he returned to the bullpen. Or at least that's what I'm sure Jim would tell you. 

    Not bad for a septuagenarian. I mean that with all due respect, of course.
