Michelle Obama at Camden Yards today



rsz_obama_004.jpgDavid Price is eager for the opportunity to meet first lady Michelle Obama today as part of a joint White House/MLB/players union initiative to combat childhood obesity.


Pitcher James Shields and infielder Sean Rodriguez are also participating as the players will stage a youth clinic.

"It's going to be cool; I'm excited about it," Price said. "And getting to meet her will be good experience."

Upon arriving at the field, Price, Shields and Rodriguez, in full uniform, were wanded by security.

When Mrs. Obama asked the group of kids if they get 60 minutes of exercise a day, Price raised his hand.
