Bill Clinton Makes Surprise Visit at Softball Game in East Hampton

The former president wasn't on the field, but he took in a few minutes of the Artists Writers Softball game.

Former President Bill Clinton, who is with his wife Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, stopped by the on Saturday afternoon. The surprise appearance at the game, held in one week later than usual due to last week's rain, only last about five minutes, but that was plenty of time for one Patch reader to get past Secret Service and snap a photo with the former president. Clinton was with his son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky, and was reportedly on his way to an appointment when he walked through the park, with one inning left, just before 4 p.m. He didn't stick around to see the Writers team win, 12- 11.

I was at the game. A few of the players were yelling "Four more years!" It was quite a thrill. Only in East Hampton...

I met him at the Stand Up for Heroes benefit in November. He really is pretty charismatic. Glad he is still doing well. Bill and Hilary for President!

Although I didn't vote for him (I don't vote for any any party label.), I do believe Bill Clinton's post-presidency (like Carter's, et al.) has improved his image, imho. I certainly appreciate his continued contributions to our current political and social discussions and debate, and the fact that he makes himself available to his fellow Americans. Kudos, Mr. President!
