Dr. Fauci throws a perfect “social distance” pitch in MLB’s season opener
On baseball’s opening day, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci throws the first pitch for the Washington Nationals. His pitch was more than just a hair outside. Call it a “social distance” pitch (definitely more than six feet from the target). No fans were in the stands; just cardboard cutouts.

He pitched a properly distanced pitch and then immediately violated social distance with that fist bump!
He was masked ! Safe !
