If the Houston Astros force a Game 5 of the World Series, there will be a special person in attendance.

According to a report from White House Correspondent Justin Sink of Bloomberg, President Donald Trump plans to go to Sunday's game.

That is, of course, if the Washington Nationals don't sweep the Astros first. The Nationals did the unthinkable by beating Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander in back-to-back nights to take a stranglehold on the series.

However, if the Astros win at least one game, Trump will go to the first World Series in D.C.

As for his involvement in the game, it doesn't sound like he'd be willing to throw out the first pitch.

"I don’t know. They got to dress me up in a lot of heavy armor. I’ll look too heavy - I don’t like that," he reportedly said to reporters.

Former President George W. Bush threw out arguably the most-famous first pitch in baseball history following the events of September 11. Other presidents, such Barack Obama have also thrown out first pitches as well.

Even Trump himself has tossed out first pitches on numerous occasions before his presidency.

Regardless, this all becomes a moot point if the Astros can't find a way to slow down the Nationals' bats. The series continues on Friday night as the Nationals host Game 3.
