Tim will have the honor of delivering the game ball to the pitcher’s mound, joined by a local member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the official charity of Major League Baseball. Tim was invited by the Phillies and Major League Baseball as a symbolic gesture to honor his late father Tug McGraw, who pitched the Phillies to a World Series win in 1980.

Taylor has been selected to perform the national anthem prior to the game. The Pennsylvania native performed her first anthem at the age of 10 for her hometown team, the minor league Reading (Pa.) Phillies. The game will be televised on FOX, beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
