Former President George W. Bush was almost hit by a foul ball at Monday night’s White Sox vs. Texas Rangers baseball game.

White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski leaped toward Bush to try to catch the ball but missed.

“Just cause he was the president doesn’t mean I wouldn’t jump on top of him,” Pierzynski told Bush, according to Fox’s Orlando affiliate.
