BOSTON -- Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig is set to appear Friday on the "Morning Joe" program, which is airing a special edition live from Fenway Park from 6 to 9 a.m. ET on MSNBC.
Broadcasting from the Red Sox's historic stadium on Fenway's 100th birthday, Morning Joe is also scheduled to have on Boston mayor Thomas Menino, U.S. senators John Kerry and Scott Brown, senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren, Mike Barnicle, Doris Kearns Goodwin and MLB.com's Peter Gammons, among others.
Morning Joe is a weekday talk show hosted by Joe Scarborough.
Fenway Park's birthday has been plenty busy, and the day itself hasn't even arrived yet. An open house was held on Thursday, allowing fans to explore the ballpark for free, while Friday marks 100 years since Fenway's first game. The Yankees and Sox play at 3:05 p.m. ET, with a special pre-game ceremony to be held beforehand.
The Red Sox aren't revealing the details of Friday's first-pitch ceremony. All living Red Sox uniformed personnel whose whereabouts were known were invited to participate in the day.
