After making a pilgrimage to their father's hometown of Gary, Ind., this week, Michael Jackson's children continued to celebrate what would have been the King of Pop's 54th birthday by participating in America's favorite pastime.

On Thursday, Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and Blanket, 10, along with their aunt, La Toya Jackson, 56, attended a Gary Southshore Railcats baseball game – where they threw out ceremonial pitches in honor of their father.

"We're here in Gary, and it's a new experience for us. People are real nice here," Prince told a local reporter "It's amazing how much he was respected and loved."
