Former President George Bush threw the ceremonial first pitch at Oklahoma State’s last regular season game.

The Preston Hollow neighbor was originally supposed to throw the pitch at O’Brate Stadium in March 2020, but that was postponed until yesterday due to the pandemic.

Wearing an OSU jacket, Bush stood at the edge of the mound and launched the baseball to the catcher. His pitch preceded one by Cecil O’Brate, an OSU benefactor, business owner, oil and gas investor and farmer.

Watch the two pitches below.
