After days of rain, ground crews worked to get Wednesday night's Vermont Mountaineers game ready.

Something that not only the players wanted to see, but some young fans as well.

Before the game started, Kyle and Chase Jeter took to the mound and threw out the first pitch.

The two got the honor of doing so because the team honored their great-great grandfather, Vermont native, President Calvin Coolidge.

"I know that my great-great grandfather threw a lot these while being president and it's good to follow in his footsteps," said Chase Jeter.

"It's nice to follow in his footsteps," said Kyle Jeter.

The 30th US president and his wife Grace loved the sport.

Earlier this year, a new baseball exhibit opened at Coolidge's homestead in Plymouth Notch.

It features memorabilia the Coolidge's collected.

An exhibit his great-great grand kids can't wait to see.

"I haven't seen it yet, but I think that it will be neat to see," said Chase Jeter.

Although Wednesday night was all about baseball, Coolidge's young relatives are proud of what he accomplished.

"It's amazing to think that one person can change so many people's lives as president," said Chase Jeter.

As for keeping America's pastime in the Coolidge family.

The Jeter's say there's no plans to let tradition that go.

"It's clear that my brother and I have embraced that love," said Kyle Jeter.

That exhibit at Coolidge's homestead in Plymouth Notch will be on display until October.
