The world's wealthiest man threw a baseball to the most respected CEO of his generation. And it all happened last night in Boston, home of the 2007 World Champion Red Sox, according to CNBC.com.
Who am I talking about? Berkshire Hathaway Inc (NYSE: BRK.A) CEO, Warren Buffett, was the pitcher, and retired General Electric Company's (NYSE: GE) Chairman and CEO, Jack Welch played catcher at Boston's Fenway Park.
CNBC reports that the pitch "was 'a little high and outside,' but it certainly didn't bounce four or five times before reaching the plate, as [CNBC thought he predicted] when he first told [CNBC] he'd be making his Fenway debut."
No comment was available on Welch's catching skills.
