Episode Info:

This episode of Whistlestop travels back to April 13, 1953 when Washington DC’s baseball team, the Senators, hoped the nation’s new President would deliver the first pitch of the season. Instead, President Dwight D. Eisenhower was on the links of Augusta, enjoying the sport he loved best of all.

Whistlestop is Slate’s podcast about presidential campaign history. Hosted by our political correspondent and Political Gabfest panelist John Dickerson, each installment will revisit a memorable (or even a forgotten) moment from America's quadrennial carnival. Podcast production and edit by Jocelyn Frank. Research by Brian Rosenwald.
