NFL stars to align for McCoy Celebrity Softball Game
by Todd Sadowski
LeSean McCoy is hosting his second annual celebrity softball game this Saturday Night at Clipper Magazine Stadium in Lancaster. The Eagles running back and Bishop McDevitt grad has a very impressive lineup set for this year’s contest. The first year was no disappointment as McCoy brought current and former Eagles like Brian Westbrook, DeSean Jackson and Michael Vick to the game. He has called on more of his NFL friends like Darrelle Revis, Ray Rice, Torrey Smith, Asante Samuel, Jared Odrick and Dominique Rodgers–Cromartie. Event organizers say there are more big names on the list.
“We’re encouraging people to come out Saturday Night to see who we have,” says Paul Kreider of the LeSean McCoy Foundation. “We have a very good list of Eagles players coming as well as players from the NFL. We also have some surprises.”
Gates open at five o’clock. There is a home run derby at six followed by the game at seven.
