Former President Barack Obama used his sweet lefty swing to own some kids in softball
Former president and coolest guy ever Barack Obama is staying busy since leaving the White House. He's jet-skiing with Richard Branson, sharing heartwarming posts about his wife, Michelle, on social media, and, on Wednesday, he was in D.C. to hang out at Nats Academy -- an after-school program that uses baseball to enrich the lives of kids in the city. The kids were just a little bit excited to see him.
Obama laughed and joked with his fans, but when it was time to play some softball, the noted Chicago White Sox fan strode up to the plate and did not get cheated. Check it out at the :24 second mark below.
