President Wilson appeared in a lot of newsreels. "President Wilson throws out the first ball, at opening of baseball park. Copyright 1915 by Universal Animated Weekly." I'm guessing this is the opening of Braves Field in August. On 09-October-1915, Wilson became the first president throw out the first ball at a World Series game, when the Boston Red Sox played the Philadelphia Phillies at the Baker Bowl in Philadelphia. Wilson was a big baseball fan.
