This day in baseball: Presidential attendance

The first U.S. President to attend a major league baseball game was Benjamin Harrison, who attended a contest between the Cincinnati Reds and the Washington Senators on June 6, 1892 in Washington, D.C.  Cincinnati defeated the Senators, 7-4, in eleven innings at Boundary Field.
