Video: President Obama calls and congratulates the Giants

Despite their early insecurity that he wouldn't call, President Barack Obama got on the horn with the San Francisco Giants a few days ago to congratulate them and field a request that he throw out the first pitch at AT&T Park next season.

According to this list, a sitting president has thrown out the first pitch for a West Coast team on only two occasions — Nixon for the Angels in '73 and Clinton for the Giants in '00. He might not need to solidify his base in San Francisco any further, but it would be cool if Obama finds that his schedule is open for the opportunity.
