Decoder Buzz Obama visits Cooperstown. Which president knew baseball best? (+video)

Barack Obama is apparently the first sitting president to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. But he's not the most knowledgeable baseball fan. One president drew up his own all-time all-stars team.

Today, President Obama is visiting the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. He’s the first sitting US chief executive to drop in at this iconic site of Americana, apparently. At least one previous president visited Cooperstown but didn’t bother to go see Babe Ruth’s bat, Ty Cobb’s spikes, and so on. That may have been because that was so long ago the Hall of Fame didn’t yet exist.
