From 1913, when William H. Taft was president, until 1971 and the presidency of Richard Nixon, every president
threw out a first pitch at a Washington Nationals or Washington Senators baseball game. When Washington final-
ly lost its baseball team for good, the Baltimore Orioles took up the task of hosting some presidents and other polit-
ical VIPs albeit less frequently. The following non-presidents have hurled a pitch in Washington or Baltimore.

For the Daily
Although 1998 marks the 150th
birthday of the Univeristy's Medical
School, most of its doctors, physi-
cians and researchers prefer to let
their ground-breaking work -
rather than major ceremonies and
parties - mark the occasion.
"We are a magnet for top students
at undergraduate, graduate, profes-
sional and post-doctoral levels
because of our outstanding faculty,
excellent resources and special core
facilities," said University
Executive Vice President for
Medical Affairs Gilbert Omenn.
Omen points to the work of
University medical school faculty
members such as Dr. Mark
Kaminski of the school's
Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Kaminski has successfully devel-
oped the drug Bexxar, which shows
auspicious results against non-
Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of
the immune system. Established in
1986 and designated a Center of
Excellence by the Board of Regents,
Comprehensive Cancer Center
(CCC) exists as a pioneer of
"transnational research" - more
than 200 faculty members in multi-
disciplinary fields engage in
research and interpret those find-
ings into practice. The CCC pro-
duces the Michigan Oncology
Journal, a publication that informs
readers about cancer-related issues,
such as the development of a den-
dritic cell-based vaccine. The
National Cancer Institute recog-
nizes the CCC as one of the pre-
miere establishments of study. It is
only one of many esteemed research
branches of the Medical School.
Ranked ninth among all institu-
tions in federally funded research
and third among all public universi-
ties in fiscal 1997, the Medical
School and its off-shoots spent
$95.5 million total for direct
research, according to literature
produced by the Medical School.
The National Institute of Health
awarded 471 grants to Medical
School faculty last year, and 82 of
the 168 invention disclosures at the
University occurred at the Medical
School. Associated staff members
received $964,000 in royalties.
"We are well-positioned to con-
tinue our efforts as the congress has
mandated a significant step-up in
funding for NIH and other health
resource agencies," Omenn said.
Funding comes in private form as
well; in fact, the recent "Momentum
Campaign" raised about $278 mil-
lion from alumni and supporters for
research, scholarships and endowed
Undoubtedly financially prosper-
ous, the Medical School provides a
heady symbiosis of basic science,
clinical application and community
