Meanwhile, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig this afternoon will lead a press conference in S.F. honoring World War II veterans as part of the league's designation of Welcome Back Veterans as the featured cause for Game 2. Welcome Back Veterans, founded in part by Mets Owner Fred Wilpon, focuses on aiding veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan as they return to civilian life. But the league is also seeking to recognize WWII veterans, particularly those who suspended or ended their baseball careers to serve. Joining Selig will be HOF manager Tommy Lasorda and two HOF broadcasters and veterans – Jerry Coleman and Bob Wolff. Several members of that group are also slated to visit the S.F. VA Medical Center this morning.
