The Weekly Hit List: May 23, 2014

On Monday, President Barack Obama unexpectedly showed up at Jim Wallis’ son’s Little League game.

Jim Wallis, author of The (Un)Common Good, wrote in TIME:

“Some of my baseball parents know that the President has been a friend of mine for a long time. I was a member of his original faith council and have worked with him on issues like poverty and immigration. But I had no idea he was coming and he was as surprised to see me as I was to see him. ‘Wallis, what are you doing here!’ Obama yelled with a big smile as he walked onto Friendship Field. Like the best moments in sports—some things just happen.”
