NEW YORK -- Former President Bill Clinton will be the keynote speaker at Major League Baseball's Civil Rights game weekend.

Clinton will speak at a luncheon in Cincinnati on June 20 before the Reds play the Chicago White Sox.

Hank Aaron, Muhammad Ali and Bill Cosby will be honored with awards. The Civil Rights game was shifted to the regular season this year after being held as a preseason exhibition for two years in Memphis, Tenn.

Baseball established the event to honor people who worked toward civil rights.
