When was the first ceremonial pitch in Major League Baseball?

The tradition of the ceremonial first pitch or presidential pitch on Major League Baseball's opening day began on May 24, 1910.

At Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C., on the Washington Senators' Opening Day President William Howard Taft was given the honor to throw out the first pitch to Washington Senators' pitcher Walter Johnson.

In 1915 Woodrow Wilson threw out the first pitch to start the World Series.
