World Series Fans Chant “LOCK HIM UP” At Trump

The New York Times reports:

In his first appearance at a Major League Baseball game since taking office, Mr. Trump was not invited to throw the first pitch when he showed up Sunday night at Game 5 between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros. Instead, when he was shown on the stadium’s large screen, the crowd booed robustly and began chanting, “Lock him up!” In the upper decks, fans held up a giant “Impeach Trump!” banner.

The unfriendly reaction may explain his reluctance to take himself out to the ballpark until now. Although he has boasted of his time as team captain for the baseball squad at the New York Military Academy and in the past happily offered regular commentary on the game, before Sunday Mr. Trump had never attended a professional baseball contest while living in the White House, an unusually prominent break from the national pastime for a sitting president.
