Former Ball Players Turned Politicians

President George W. Bush
Baseball is in his blood. Before becoming the 43rd President of the United States, Bush was a second baseman at Yale and a part-owner of the Texas Rangers.

Jim Bunning

As a pitcher for the Tigers and Phillies, he blew away opponents and became the second player in history to win 100 games in both the American and National leagues. Currently in his second term as a senator from Kentucky, Bunning is leading the battle for stiffer penalties for steroid users in Major League Baseball.
