Michelle Obama, Jill Biden to Attend World Series Game
The White House announced this afternoon that Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden will make a trip to New York on Wednesday to attend game one of the World Series at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx between the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Before the game, Obama and Biden will visit patients at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in the Bronx, along with players from the Yankees.
The White House said Major League Baseball is dedicating the game to veterans and their families. The New York Daily News reports reports that Obama and Biden will participate in a pre-game ceremony honoring veterans.
One thing to watch for tomorrow night: Will Biden, a Phillies fan, wear team paraphernalia to the game?
