Anyone know if MLB has any items on tap for that Saturday in regards to ceremonies, moments of silence, etc?

I'm almost positive that there will be a moment of silence. As for anything else, I'm not sure. Then again, I'm using 2003 as my example. I was at the Cell on September 11th last year. There was a moment of silence, and the 7th inning stretch included "God Bless America". They might have had members of the Armed Forces present the colors, but I'm not sure.

I think that, maybe, it would be a good idea if a proceed of each MLB team's gate that day goes to that respective city's fund for the widows and orphans of fallen police and fire fighters. Teams on the road that day can do it their next home game.

Ah well. I'll do a fly over or something.
