POLITICS AS USUAL | MCCAIN & OBAMA HELP OPEN WORLD SERIES ON FOX
With Election Day just around the corner, presidential candidates Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama, both fans of the national pastime, took time out of their hectic campaign schedules to take an active role in FOX Sports’ World Series coverage. Each candidate recorded inspirational quotes from American icons including Martin Luther King, Jr. and former presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy about the game of baseball as a beacon of hope through some of America’s most difficult times. These quotes will be woven into the opening segment of each World Series broadcast. Academy Award-winning actor Michael Douglas narrates the open. Here’s a sneak peak.
