October 30, 2001. Just over a month after the horrors of 9/11, New York's only true joy was coming from the pinstriped boys in The Bronx. Yet, after falling to the Arizona Diamondbacks in Games 1 & 2 in the desert, the Yankees needed a little extra boost when the series shifted back to the Big Apple. Enter Stage Left...the ultimate surprise guest, the Commander in Chief, America's leader, President George W. Bush! Arriving in New York to help lift the morale of a population shocked by terror, the former owner of the Texas Rangers showed that baseball still coursed through his veins. Wearing a specially embroidered NYPD-FDNY sweatshirt, President Bush entered the stadium to a roaring ovation during the opening ceremonies. Instead of simply soft-tossing from the front row, or standing on the grass a few steps from a smiling catcher, the President took the mound, wound up like a pro, and delivered a perfect strike over the plate, the full 60' 6" away! It was an inspiring display of Americana, and a true morale booster for America - not to mention for the Yankees, who went on to win that night, and the following two as well, to head back to Phoenix with a 3-2 series lead.

Published in poster size exclusively for, this historic print is the perfect commemoration of a great night at Yankee Stadium, and a great moment in the Presidency of George W. Bush. Capturing the President in the middle of his picture-perfect moment, this is a true classic for the wall of any fan of baseball, and those who appreciate its impact on American culture!
