US Baseball, Football to Honor 9-11 Victims

All Major League Baseball games on September 11 will pause at 9:11 p.m. local time for a moment of silence in remembrance of last year's terrorist attacks.

Following the moment of silence at the baseball games, a videotape will be shown in memory of those who died. During afternoon games on September 11, the moment of silence will be held during the seventh-inning stretch, and the video will follow.

National Football League fans will hear an address this week on last year's events from President Bush and team personnel will wear logos commemorating the events.

Members of the New York Giants and Jets will wear caps with the initials or logos of the New York fire and police departments or the New York/ New Jersey Port Authority personnel. The Giants open the season Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers. The Washington Redskins will wear caps with a Pentagon logo.
