LeSean McCoy recruits friends for celebrity softball
LeSean McCoy and a few of his buddies are taking a trip out to Amish country.
The LeSean McCoy Foundation will hold its second annual LeSean McCoy Celebrity Softball Game at Clipper Magazine Stadium in Lancaster on June 22 at 7 p.m. Confirmed guests include McCoy, Mike Vick, DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Ray Rice, Plaxico Burress, Torrey Smith, Marques Colston, Mike Wallace and Mark Ingram.
“I am really excited by the positive response from so many teammates and friends from around the league,” McCoy said in a statement. “We are talking to a number of other great players that I hope to announce in the near future. Coach Chip Kelly has also been invited.”
The game will be preceded by a home run derby and concludes with a fireworks show. Dugout box seats are on sale for $40. Field box seats are $20 and lawn seats are $10.
Proceeds will benefit the LeSean McCoy Foundation and help raise awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), an affliction that McCoy’s late grandmother battled.
