(CNN) - Talk about a little pre-game motivation.
President Barack Obama made a surprise stop Monday at a Little League baseball field in D.C. to greet players before their game.
"Oh my God, it's the President!" one player said, according to pool reports.
Obama was on his way to a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee event when he stopped by to greet Della Carney, daughter of spokesman Jay Carney, and her teammates.
"Had to bring your dad to the game or he was going to be late," Obama said as he approached the group, according to the report.
The President threw out a pitch and took pictures with the kids.
Obama travels on Thursday to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
CNN's Dana Davidsen contributed to this report.
Once again our President shows his compassion and human side. You are a great father, leader, and diplomat. God Bless Our First Family and God Bless America.
cool .really cool..wow....
Nice going mr prez he cares about people
Maybe after the Hall of Fame visit he'll have a chance to show us how upset he is about the VA veteran deaths.
That is a nice side benefit of the job where people are in awe when you show up. I hope that the team won.
He broke away from the campaigning for a minute.
Obama is so kool. And he saved our country.
Why are the Repubs trying to ruin our country?

Saw this on TV this morning. The kids were elated to have our President at the games.
To the haters, yes, the man does take time out for a little R&R.
i know the first thing tea partners will say, is the reason why they hate Obama so much is because of his socialist policies. WHAT!!! the so called obamacare is a conservative idea, i wonder what they would have called the dems idea of single payer.
That was cute. You're a good guy and a class act Mr. President.
Bring on the hate.....
We need Education–not mucho, mucho.muscle.
Wow, destroying the country is not enough, he now is destroying our youth. Pull up your big girl panties Mr. President and do what is right instead of causing problems and then moving on to the next item.
