President William Howard Taft threw out the first ever ceremonial first pitch on baseball’s Opening Day, April 14, 1910. On the spiritual side of the house, the 27th President identified as Unitarian:

“I am a Unitarian. I believe in God. I do not believe in the divinity of Christ, and there are many other of the postulates of the orthodox creed to which I cannot subscribe. I am not, however, a scoffer at religion but on the contrary recognize, in the fullest manner, the elevating influence that it has had and always will have in the history of mankind.”
