Larry Fitzgerald Softball Game/2015 Draft

With the 2015 draft coming up, this post covering Larry Fitzgerald’s Annual Softball game this past weekend seemed necessary.

One of the coolest parts of working for media is that you get credentials for some of the coolest events of the year. You get to be up close and personal to some of the newest and most popular artists, athletes and celebs.

A little background information on Larry Fitzgerald’s Softball game: This was the 5th year doing this event and I was able to go last year too. He gathers together a list of some of the most well-known or up and coming athletes, artists and personalities to take part in this game and tickets are only $20! That’s not even the best part..it is all for a good cause. The Larry Fitzgerald First Down Fund‘s goal has been to assist children and their families lead happier and healthier lives. The Larry Fitzgerald First Down Fund provides significant gifts in time, money and resources to support programs and institutions across the country. Organizations like the Arizona Tempe School District, the Boys and Girls Club of Arizona and the Big Brother/Big Sister program in Arizona continue to receive ongoing contributions to help support their missions. The event was also partnered with United Food Bank, so attendees were encouraged to bring canned food to provide food for the children that go to bed hungry in Arizona every night. With that being said, it was a blast with a positive purpose! Also, shoutout to Salt River Fields for providing the beautiful backdrop. Below are some pictures I was able to grab of the players.
