The Guy Can Pitch, Too

.
President Obama throws out the first pitch at last night's baseball All Star Game in St. Louis. He's wearing a Chicago White Sox jacket, his favorite team.

BELOW:

Top: Secret Service agents stand guard on the roof of the stadium, awaiting the president.

Middle: a stealth fighter flies over Busch Stadium, just for show.

Bottom: fans wait in line to enter the stadium. There was a lot of extra security and we waited in the queue about an hour.

TOMORROW: Thursday Arch Series (All Star Edition)

Do snipers on rooftops make one nervous or safe? You assume these are highly trained individuals, but what if one has a bad day?

Im just saying...I attended the game, there were 15 snipers total. 8 in visible sight, and the others were hidden.

Incredible photos BTW...keep up the good work!

Great shot of President Obama.

I know a little bit about those Stealth Fighters and they're wicked. You must have had your long range lenses with you. I'm impressed.
