Vice President Joe Biden tossed out the first pitch yesterday and then spent some time with John and Suzyn in the radio booth.

Meanwhile, some of the Yankees used their day off today to visit The White House.

A group of 22 players, coaches and others on the travel party were given a private 90-minute tour that included the West Wing, Rose Garden and Oval Office. Players in attendance included Xavier Nady, Nick Swisher, Joba Chamberlain, Cody Ransom, Edwar Ramirez, Jose Veras, Phil Coke, Jonathan Albaladejo and Ramiro Pena.

Kevin Long, Dave Eiland, Mike Harkey, Mick Kelleher and Rob Thomson were there as well.

Swisher was named Secretary of Loud Music later in the day.
