The Houston Astros got the presidential treatment ahead of their big win in Game 5 of the World Series in Houston on Sunday night.

Former President George W. Bush threw the ceremonial first pitch to get the night started, but not before his father, former President George H.W. Bush, handed him the ball.

Bush has impressed with his pitching ability before and his throw last night was only more proof that the former president has a hell of an arm. (RELATED: Watch George W. Bush’s Famous Pitch At Yankee Stadium Right After 9/11)

Obviously, the crowd went wild.

After his father handed him the ball, Bush walked straight out to the pitcher’s mound, did a quick turn and threw a perfect strike straight over the plate reminiscent of his first pitch in Game 3 of the World Series back in 2001 at Yankee stadium shortly after 9/11.

Bush’s pitch Sunday night came a little more than 16 years later, but at 71-years-old he’s still got it.
