We Spotted Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke In His Baseball Fan Avatar

Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke is a huge baseball fan.

Earlier this year, Bernanke who has an engraved Louisville baseball bat, told ABC News that he is “very optimistic” about the Nationals this year. 

Naturally, after this week’s meeting where there was much pressure on the Fed to act, Bernanke went off to watch a baseball game between the Washington Nationals and the Philadelphia Phillies. Happily, the Nationals won 3-0.
