CHICAGO-- General John Allen, the commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan, will toss out the symbolic first ball Saturday night at the Cubs/Sox crosstown classic at Wrigley Field. Both Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are expected to attend the game.
There was some talk, I hear of all three tossing out balls--but in the end, the decision was made to stick with tradition and have only one symbolic first pitch.
Allen is based at the ISAF Headquarters in Kabul.
And it's play ball for the Chicago NATO Summit.
