Bernie Williams – remember him? – was at the White House yesterday serving as a coach in the last tee-ball game that President Bush hosted on the South Lawn. Children of military families participated in the event.
Bernie got a tour of the White House and a brief meeting with the President, who is a big baseball fan.
Bernie’s marketing agent, Steve Fortunato, indicated that plans are in the works for Bernie to make an appearance at the Stadium before it closes. That’s good to hear.
