Reckless Kelly’s 2nd Annual Celebrity Softball Jam
Baseball fans, grab your caps, because the 2010 season has begun! To commemorate the beginning of America’s favorite past time, Reckless Kelly and the Round Rock Express have teamed up once again for the 2nd Annual Celebrity Softball Jam. On Sunday, April 25 at 1pm, the gates of the Dell Diamond will swing open to the public for an afternoon of FIERCE high-profile competition followed by an evening of music from some of your favorite artists.
Festivities kick off at 2 pm with the softball game, a star-studded competition including the members of Reckless Kelly, NASCAR’s Kyle Petty, former boxing champion Jesse James Leija, and many more. Following the game, the stage will be set in the middle of the field and audiences will be invited down for a grand slam of a concert. Headlining is, of course, Reckless Kelly, the acclaimed root-rock band who has received awards such as Best Country Band (Austin Music Awards) and Best Live Band (Lone Star Music Award). They’ll be joined by country/rock band Cross Canadian Ragweed, as well as Dale Watson, Scott Miller, The Trishas, The Motorcars, and Cory Morrow. And if that’s not enough excitement, as a grand finale, fireworks are set to explode above the stadium to bring the night home.
Proceeds from the benefit go towards both the Little League of Austin as well as The Miracle League, a program whose mission is to create opportunities for children, disabled or no, to play on the baseball field. After last years event, Reckless Kelly donated over $30,000 to local organizations such as these, and it would be great to see this number beat! Tickets are $15 on the day of the show, and only $12 if purchased in advance. Children 12 and under get in FREE when accompanied by a paying adult. Also, we’re giving away 5 PAIRS of tickets, so make sure to visit our events page for more details and your chance to win!
This is a amazing event supporting an even more amazing cause, so be sure and bring out the whole family! We’ll see you there!
