We had an awesome time at the San Diego State University July 9th for the 12th annual Celebrity Softball Challenge. We had a full line-up which started with a Home Run Hitting Derby featuring Combat Sports, the San Diego Fire Dept and All Star Vets. We then went into our pre-game exhibition event featuring the local Veterans from All-Star Vets and the San Diego Fire Department.
The main event began after the Marine Color Guard presented the colors, and a great time was had by all! The pix will be posted here and across our social media, so watch for those, and be sure to catch the highlights on Fox Sports San Diego, beginning July 23rd. Check your local listings.

This year, the battlefield being University of Cincinnati’s Marge Schott Stadium, Captains Johnny Bench and Evander Holyfield went head to head for the 2015 softball bragging rights. It was an intense game, fought by brave members of the Bengals, Blue Jackets, Fitness Gurus and Hollywood Celebs – which ultimately saw Team Bench knocking out Team Holyfield by a score of 31-17. The game was full of fun, surprises and laughs – and the pre-game Interactive Zone helped to raise awareness and funds for local youth groups. Be sure to catch the full recap on Fox Sports:
