The former Guilford College third baseman also shows pretty good form as he throws out the first pitch at last night’s Grasshoppers game:
“It’s going to the right,” Berger said. “Like everything I do.”
Mark Walker, Berger’s opponent in the GOP runoff for the 6th District seat, threw out the first pitch Monday night — but Berger said he wasn’t worried about how he’d compare.
“It comes naturally to me,” Berger said, whipping out a cellphone to show off a picture from his days as a third baseman at Guilford College. “That was 30 pounds ago, but I can still do it.”
N&R also reports Berger has received an endorsement from Tea Party Express, “the country’s largest Tea Party-inspired political action committee.”
On the subject of endorsements, Walker has received the endorsements of Guilford County Sheriff B.J. Barnes and Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson —maybe not something to brag about. But remaining silent is Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page, which doesn’t necessarily speak well for Berger.
