Forever President Barack Obama Surprises D.C. Youth and Joins Them in Play

Our forever President Obama made a surprise visit to the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy last Wednesday to play with the kids and share some words of encouragement.

With a bag of groceries in tow to contribute to the academy’s fresh produce market, Obama showed up completely unbeknownst to the children or their parents. Academy staff had been given a ‘heads up’ that he may make an appearance that week, but they kept it secret as to not disappoint the children if Obama’s schedule changed. While the parents present tried their best to remain calm and collected, the children could not contain their excitement. The one kid who represents all of us is the boy running and screaming “Barack Obama! Barack Obama!” as seen in the video below.
