Jill Biden will travel to Minneapolis on Tuesday to attend Major League Baseball's All-Star Game and host an event celebrating teachers, the White House announced.
Biden, a community college professor, will meet with “All Star Teachers” drawn from each of the 30 Major League markets at a ceremony Tuesday afternoon, and then watch the game with them and their guests. The group will also appear in a parade through downtown Minneapolis.
In 2009, President Obama threw out the first pitch at the All-Star Game in St. Louis. It was at that game the president wore a now-infamous pair of “mom jeans.”
Earlier this year, Obama mentioned the incident during a trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.
“At the Hall’s request, I contributed something of my own, which is the jacket I wore when I threw out the first pitch at the 2009 All-Star Game,” the president said. “I hear that with all the media attention about it, there was also some interest in the jeans I wore that night. But Michelle retired those jeans quite awhile back.”
