President Trump Cancelled a First Pitch That was Never Scheduled

President Donald Trump said in on MLB's Opening Day that he had to cancel on the New York Yankees' offer to have him throw out the first pitch on August 15th. According to the New York Times, this was news to the Yankees, not because they were expecting him on August 15th, but because no date had been set yet.

The New York Times says:

There was one problem: Mr. Trump had not actually been invited on that day by the Yankees, according to one person with knowledge of Mr. Trump’s schedule. His announcement surprised both Yankees officials and the White House staff.
But Mr. Trump had been so annoyed by Dr. Fauci’s turn in the limelight, an official familiar with his reaction said, that he had directed his aides to call Yankees officials and make good on a longtime standing offer from Mr. Levine to throw out an opening pitch. No date was ever finalized.
