WASHINGTON — First lady Michelle Obama will attend Game 1 of the World Series between the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.

Mrs. Obama's office announced Tuesday that she will be joined at Yankee Stadium by the vice president's wife, Jill Biden.

Major League Baseball is dedicating Game 1 to veterans and their families. Both Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden spend time visiting with military families and talking about the sacrifices they make for the country.

Earlier Wednesday, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden are scheduled to join New York Yankees players when they visit patients at a veterans' medical center in the Bronx.
