All Five Living U.S. Presidents to Appear in Video Celebrating Baseball's 80th All-Star Game

All five living presidents will appear in a video to be aired as part of the ceremony before the 80th Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 14

 

According to MLB, President Obama, along with former U.S. Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter, will give a video address commemorating the achievements of 30 men and women recognized by Major League Baseball and PEOPLE magazine for their community service.

 

The seven-minute video will be the first time all living presidents have participated at an event at a sporting ceremony, according to a release by MLB.

 

After the video, Obama is expected to throw the ceremonial first pitch at the game in St. Louis.

 

The 30 honorees, celebrated as "All-Stars Among Us,"  each represent one baseball club, and have been selected online by fans. Each president will highlight the community service of one of the honorees.

 

Major League Baseball will also raise money for different charities, and is supporting Obama's United We Serve initiative, aimed at promoting community service and volunteerism.
