Former President fires high strike to start season


April 6, 2009

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Former President George W. Bush wound up
his arm windmill-style twice, then fired a high strike to help the Texas Rangers start the season.

In his first big appearance locally since moving to Dallas from the White House, Bush received a standing ovation and overwhelming cheers from a crowd of about 40,000 Monday after the public address announcer said to "welcome home the 43rd president."

Bush, he team's managing general partner from 1989 until being elected governor of Texas in 1994, acknowledged the cheers as he made his way to the base of the mound.
