The First Lady and Dr. Jill Biden enjoy America’s pastime at Game 1 of the World Series.

The White Sox may be out of the running, but that didn’t stop First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden from attending Game 1 of the World Series at Yankee Stadium in Bronx, N.Y., between the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees.

Donning their custom World Series jackets, the two accompanied baseball great Yogi Berra and retired Army Capt. Tony Odierno onto the field.  Odierno, a West Point graduate and Yankees employee who lost his left arm in Iraq, threw out the first pitch.
