Two former presidents kick off game four of the World Series

Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and his son, George W. Bush, made an on-field appearance Sunday night in game four of the World Series in Arlington, Texas. 

The younger Bush, in a Rangers jacket, threw out the first pitch to Hall of Famer and Texas Rangers President Nolan Ryan, while his father watched. 

The 86-year-old elder Bush needed a hand climbing out of a golf cart but he smiled and joked his son and Ryan for a few minutes. 

As Ryan headed to home plate to take up his position he asked Bush, "You want me behind the plate?" Bush laughed and said "Yeah, that's fine," in what seemed like question of whether Bush could reach the plate with the pitch. 

He reached easily. 

Both former presidents were accompanied by their wives Barbara and Laura, who were shown taking photos of their husbands from their seats. 

The younger Bush once held a stake in the Rangers, who are making their first-ever appearance in the World Series. He became managing in 1989 and held at least a minority stake until 1998, when the team was sold.
