Following Award of Nobel Prize, Obama Inducted into Baseball Hall of Fame

Cooperstown, New York--Following his award of the Nobel Peace Prize after only nine months in office and little to show for it, President Obama was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame for throwing out the first pitch at the 2009 All-Star game.

In accepting the award, Obama said his pitching prowess grew out of his bowling skills, which he infamously compared to "the Special Olympics" on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

The Baseball Writers Association also credited Obama with "introducing Mom jeans into the baseball wardrobe."
