Paul LoDuca Won’t Catch Prez

Source: WikipediaNews outlets are reporting the the Washington Nationals have chosen manager Manny Acta to catch the first ceremonial pitch from President Bush on Sunday night. Nationals team president Stan Kasten said the choice was between Acta and third baseman Ryan Zimmerman.

The obvious conspiracy theory is that because LoDuca was in the Mitchell Report that the Nationals didn’t want him doing the ceremonial pitch. My take is that they don’t want a journeyman catcher on a one year contract to do it. They want the face of their franchise out there. It’s as simple as that. I’m glad former Met coach Manny Acta gets the assignment. By all accounts he’s a great guy.
