This is the Grover Cleveland Memorial Baseball Game, played each season in memory of Mr. Cleveland's birthday. This season a team from the 22nd and 24th President plays the rookie 45th President's team.
Grover Cleveland (b. March 18, 1837 in New Jersey) was elected 22nd and 24th President of the United States as a Democrat. Donald Trump (born June 14, 1946 in New York) was elected 45th President as a Republican.
Both have connections to baseball. Cleveland liked the game, and welcomed professional baseball players to the White House. But Cleveland was reticent to be too public in his approval of the sport.
Cleveland has been ranked on many occasions by many rankers. Most recently, a group of 91 presidential historians were surveyed and the results published in February 2017. Overall, Cleveland gets ranked in the middle at #23 of the 43 Presidents ranked. The survey also ranked the Presidents by different categories. For example, in the "Moral Authority" category, Cleveland ranked #26 of 43 Presidents (a drop of 5 places compared to a similar 2009 survey.) Cleveland's highest rank at #20 was in the "Public Persuasion" category. His lowest rating at #31 was in the "Perfecting in the Context of the Times" category.
Cleveland used the veto far more often than any of his predecessors.
Cleveland supported the the Dawes General Allotment Act, part of the United States government's effort to deal with so-called "Indian affairs." The Dawes Act encouraged Native Americans to assimilate into white culture as a means of escaping poverty.
Grover Cleveland signed the government reform-based Presidential Succession Act (1886), that specified in the absence of a President and Vice President, heads of executive departments will succeed to the presidency in the order in which the departments were created.
