BThe President's Invitation Baseball game

Correct Option: 4  

Explanation:
The Easter Egg Roll
President Rutherford B. Hayes and his wife Lucy brought the event to the White House. It stopped during Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidency, and was revived by Mamie Eisenhower. The event is a race: each child pushes an egg through the grass with a long-handled spoon. Surrounding events include White House personalities in Easter Bunny costumes, speeches and book-reading by Cabinet secretaries, and exhibits of decorated eggs.
