Ten Years since 9/11 and Cubs are in NY

I was planning out my schedule for Cubs games I want to go to this year. Being that I live in CT, I really hope Cubs are better than we are projecting because for the first time in a while, East Coast Cubs fans have a really nice schedule for seeing the team.  There are weekend series against Mets, Red Sox and Phillies. Plus July 4th is against the Nationals

However, looking at the schedule I couldn't help but notice that the Cubs are playing the Mets on 9/11 in NYC...the tenth anniversary of the horrible attacks. The Yankees by the way are in LA that weekend. Personally, if one team should be playing in NY that day I think it should be the Yankees since they symbolized the state in the 2001 World Series.

Regardless, has anyone heard of this game being a special attraction? Any special guests, moment of silence, etc? Is there any specific reason why Cubs are in NY that weekend? Is it more than just the random schedule being made? I know I'm looking into this probably too much but am I the only one who thinks it's a bit strange that any game is being played in NY on 9/11?
