NEW YORK -- Muhammad Ali will help throw out the first pitch
during pregame ceremonies at Tuesday's All-Star game.

Ali, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, is an alumnus of the
Boys & Girls Club of Louisville, Ky.

"American Idol" winner Fantasia will sing the national anthem,
while Ruben Studdard, the show's second-season winner, will sing
"God Bless America" during the seventh inning stretch.
