Jill Biden joins Stand Up to Cancer at the World Series

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — First lady Jill Biden took part in the Stand Up Against Cancer campaign in the middle of the fifth inning of Game 4 of the World Series on Wednesday night.

Biden arrived at Citizens Bank Park shortly before the tribute, which came just after the Astros scored five runs in the top of the inning to take a 5-0 lead.

Those present held signs with the names of the people they want to honor. Biden’s were for son Beau, who died of a brain tumor in 2015; her sister’s father-in-law; and Corey Phelan, a Phillies minor league pitcher who died last month.

Houston’s Trey Mancini, who missed the 2020 season while undergoing treatment for colon cancer, planned to raise a card in honor of Ryan Minor, his underrated manager in the minors in Delmarva. Mancini said Minor was recently diagnosed with colon cancer,

Cedric Mullins and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. picked up Mancini’s cards for the 2021 All-Star Game in Denver.

“I was in a home derby the day before, so I was on the return flight and saw it,” Mancini said. “I was overcome with a wave of emotions when I saw it. Cedric, obviously we’re very close and good friends and teammates, and for Vlad to do that as well, someone I’ve played against for a few years and have a lot of respect for, I thought it was an incredible gesture and it really means a lot meant to me. That was really cool to see.”

Astros manager Dusty Baker underwent surgery for prostate cancer in 2001.

“Mine wasn’t as serious as his,” Baker said. “I watched him from afar when he was in Baltimore. And I’ve had a lot of guys who have had cancer, especially prostate cancer, call me for advice or ask what I’ve done for myself.”
