Sunday's game comes as the World Series is split 2-2 between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals.

The game was also attended by a top critic of the president, celebrity chef José Andrés, who threw out the first pitch prior to Trump's arrival at the game. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said earlier this week that Trump had offered to arrive after the game started and not throw out the first pitch to minimize distractions for fans at the stadium.

“His view was that in order to make the fan experience as positive as possible, he would arrive at Game 5 sometime after the game began, so that wouldn’t interfere with fans getting into the stadium. Quite frankly, we were very grateful for that,” Manfred told The Associated Press.
