Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Arizona Diamondbacks

Jack White doesn't hide his baseball fandom — he's a regular at Detroit Tigers and Chicago Cubs games and has created custom bats, limited edition baseball cards, and released an exclusive 7" record through the Tigers — and on Saturday (August 17), he further proved his love for America's pastime when he and his Raconteurs bandmates attended a Nationals-Brewers game, left in the 3rd inning to play a show at The Anthem in Washington D.C., and then returned to the game after performing when they realized it had gone into extra innings.

FOX's Ken Rosenthal was the one to report on White and his band's devotion to the game. Watch a video clip of the story below.
