TSA Administrator Pistole pitching ceremonial pitch at Washington Nationals game

TSA Administrator John S. Pistole threw out the ceremonial first pitch at a recent Washington Nationals game against the Atlanta Braves as part of the Washington National’s 2014 Patriotic Series, which recognizes service members and first responders.

The U.S. Navy parachute team descended onto the field and handed Administrator Pistole a baseball to throw out the first pitch.

Pistole was recognized for TSA’s support of the Pentagon Memorial Fund, which is a non-profit organization established by the families of the 184 victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in Washington, DC.
