At Thursday's Gary RailCats game against the St. Paul Saints, pre-game activities included a performance by the musical group, "The Gratitude Project," which included their tribute song, "Dear Michael." Following the performance, Prince, Paris and Blanket emerged from the home dugout clad in customized RailCats jerseys. Soon their aunt LaToya joined. A couple of tearful fans entered the field where Paris comforted them with hugs.

Prince was the first at the mound to throw out a first pitch, followed by sister Paris. Blanket quietly stayed close to the dugout. LaToya also went out to throw out a ceremonial first pitch. Followed were photos with Boys and Girls Club members who presented gifts to the Jackson children and then with Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson. The family was then escorted back into the dugout and they watched part of the game from a suite above first base.

Katherine Jackson will attend a reception with the mayor tonight and a tribute concert takes place Saturday evening.
