The left went berserk as the catcher donned a ‘MAGA’ hat.

Washington Nationals Catcher and recent World Series champion Kurt Suzuki donned a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat during his team’s celebratory visit to the White House on Monday, sending leftist observers into an outrage and making it clear his team wasn’t entirely partial to the views of a pitcher who declined to participate on political grounds.

It’s a longstanding tradition for champions of baseball’s World Series to visit the White House and receive congratulations from the President. Nationals Closer Sean Doolittle chose to politicize the longstanding neutral tradition by declining to attend, akin to anti-Trump athletes such as the Golden State Warriors who had turned down a visit.

President Trump, a longtime baseball fan who was once scouted by the Philadelphia Phillies as a potential player in high school, appeared genuinely surprised and flattered by the sudden appearance of a ‘MAGA’ hat on Suzuki’s head.

Leftists on Twitter reacted with their usual outrage, taking great offense at the audacity of a World Series champion who chose to wear a pro-American hat at a White House event with the President.

Suzuki rejected attempts from liberal mainstream media operatives to browbeat him after his celebratory audience with the President. The veteran MLB catcher explained that was simply “having some fun,” brushing off the media’s desire to create a political stink over the display.

The Nationals defeated the American League’s Houston Astros in seven games.

Most Nationals players appeared at the White House event, despite the hostility among some of the Nationals fanbase for President Trump. The President was booed by Nationals fans present for Game 6 of the series, most of whom were likely wealthy upper-class people with the ability to afford a ticket to a dramatic World Series game.

Make-A-Wish Vanderbilt Kicker Sarah Fuller Will Take Part in Joe Biden’s Inauguration

Naturally.

Vanderbilt University student Sarah Fuller, goalie for the women’s soccer team and erstwhile emergency kicker for the men’s football team, will be taking part in the inauguration of Joe Biden.

USA Today reports that Fuller will participate in a television program titled “Celebrating America,” which will be simulcast the evening of Inauguration Day on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and PBS.

Fuller confirmed the news on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

“It’s an honor to be invited to participate in one of America’s greatest traditions,” Fuller tweeted with pictures of herself on the Vanderbilt football field. “This historic inauguration is especially meaningful for American women and girls. The glass ceilings are breaking and it is the time to #LeadLikeAWoman.”

Multiple guests will appear on the program in addition to Fuller. Tom Hanks is hosting and both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be giving speeches.

Back in November and December the mainstream media lauded Fuller for becoming the first woman to play and then score in a Power Five college football game. In her first appearance she squib kicked the ball to Missouri’s 37-yard line and subsequently hurried to the sidelines. In later appearances she made two extra points following Vanderbilt touchdowns.

Fuller became Vanderbilt’s emergency kicker after their starting and backup kickers could not play due to COVID-19 protocols.

Big League Politics previously covered the Sarah Fuller story, specifically the reaction of Jason Whitlock, a conservative-friendly sports writer who once worked for Fox Sports. Whitlock called her appearance a “Make-A-Wish” publicity stunt.
