Election eve: Which candidate is the bigger baseball fan?

After Tuesday night, we'll know whether Barack Obama or Mitt Romney will serve as president of the United States for the next four years. Foreign policies, economic viewpoints and Big Bird initiatives have been discussed in debates and dissected by pundits.

But who's the bigger baseball fan?

Obama threw out the first pitch before the 2009 All-Star Game and at the Nationals' home opener in 2010. He's also a devout White Sox fan.

Romney hasn't had as many opportunities to deliver first pitches, but he did credit himself for Boston's 2004 World Series title. Plus, let's face it, his name is "Mitt."

So, which candidate has stronger bona fides as a fan of our national pastime? The decision is yours ...
