Chris Christie and family spend Easter in Annapolis

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie isn't running for president anymore, but on Easter he sat down to watch the presidents run.

Christie was in Annapolis to watch his son Andrew play baseball with the Princeton Tigers (6-10) in their series with the Navy Midshipmen (18-6-1), which coincided with the Washington Nationals' Racing Presidents visit to Max Bishop Stadium.

"He didn't have a great hitting game (at first) so we're hoping he starts swinging the bat a little bit better today in the second game," Christie said of his son's performance. "But he's been good behind the plate so things are good."

The younger Christie was solid behind the plate in game two of the doubleheader with Navy and went 1 for 3 at bat. The Tigers and Midshipmen split the doubleheader.

When it comes to the Racing Presidents Christie has a favorite.

"I'm a Lincoln guy," Christie said. "I like Abe."

Christie brought his whole family down to Annapolis to watch Andrew play and he had only good things to say about Annapolis. He visited previously to meet with Gov. Larry Hogan, who supported his failed bid for the Republican nomination.

"Well it's a beautiful place," he said. "You know, the weather yesterday was perfect… Then we went to Easter services this morning at the chapel and it was just really impressive so it's a great place."
