First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, will be heading to St. Louis, Missouri on Wednesday to attend game one of the Major League Baseball World Series between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals. According to a release from the First Lady’s Office, the two women will participate in a pregame ceremony “to recognize Major League Baseball’s outstanding support of America’s veterans and military families as part of their Joining Forces initiative.”
Before the game, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden will host an event honoring military families at the St. Louis Veterans Center featuring “Hall of Famer and Army veteran Red Schoendienst.” There they will debut a new public service announcement put together by Joining Forces and MLB featuring New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira and Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Johnny Damon. The PSA will first air later that evening at the game.
The women will also field questions on the new initiative as submitted through MLB’s Facebook page and on Twitter using the hashtag #AskMichelle.
