Take Me Out To The Ballgame

If the media is reporting it here, and here, can it be true? CNS News Hub finds the error.

I don’t even follow the team, but I know the Nats are on the road the week the pope is in the country. Nice that some journalist once noted that the April 17th Mass will be at the ballpark. But somehow that fact got reconstituted as a papal trip to see the team in action.

When do you think was the last time a sitting pope saw a professional or major sporting event in person? JPII in the 1980’s taking in a soccer game? Pope John XXIII at the Rome Olympics? Anybody intrepid enough to find a link verifying something like this?
