George W. Bush -- Nearly Decked by Foul Ball

5/24/2011 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former President George W. Bush almost took one to the kisser last night at a Texas Rangers game -- when a foul ball cleared the protective net in front of him ... and nearly smacked him and Laura.052411_george_bush_video



Chicago White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski -- who failed to catch the foul ball -- later admitted, "Just 'cause he was the president doesn't mean I wouldn't jump on top of him."

Sounds hot.

Uh, folks, there was a net in front of him. Take a closer look. All stadiums have a net behind home plate. Lessens the possibility of injury - and liability.

TMZ, a point of protocol: when used as a title, as you used it, it would be simply "President George W. Bush," not Former President... Once an American attains a title, he is entitled to use it for life, and it's normal protocol to allow the person to use the highest title he's earned. So, for example, a person who was once a U.S. Senator is always addressed as "Senator Jones." We call people "General Jones" long after they are no longer in the Army. If you felt the need to use the word "former" it would have been more appropriate to say, "Former Texas Rangers co-owner George W. Bush.
