Fauci Will Pitch at The 2020 Major League Season Start

The Washington Nationals, World Series champions, announced Monday that the United States’ leading infectious disease specialist, Anthony Fauci, will make the first pitch Thursday on the opening day of the 2020 major league season.

Fauci accepted the invitation to be part of the festivities surrounding the Nationals’ first game of the season, after the suspension of the start of the campaign in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Fauci has become the country’s leading voice in public health and is facing the challenges associated with the coronavirus crisis.

The Nationals-Yankees game is one of two matches to be played this Thursday at the start of the 2020 season.

Right-hander Max Scherzer will start on the mound for the Nationals, while star Gerrit Cole will also start for the Yankees.

The Los Angeles Dodgers host the San Francisco Giants in the other challenge on the first day of the 2020 Majors season.
