NBC has given its tributes to its fallen anchor and bureau chief Tim Russert. Official Washington has done likewise, as has his hometown of Buffalo, N.Y.
Not to be outdone, Major League Baseball is readying an encomium of its own, at the All-Star Game on July 15.
We hear that MLB Commissioner Bud Selig approached Russert's family about the tribute, which fittingly takes place at Yankee Stadium in the final year of the "House That Ruth Built" before it's torn down. (Before becoming a devoted Nats fan, Russert grew up a Yankees fan.) An MLB spokesman refused to comment, saying that details were still being worked out.
