Playing softball takes coordination, upper-body strength, and the courage to run counterclockwise even though that direction is normally only for the immoral and weak-hearted.

In its third year, the Larry Fitzgerald Celebrity Softball Game peppers Salt River Fields with line drives and gargantuan homers, all in the name of charity. Money raised during the event benefits the Larry Fitzgerald First Down Fund, an effort that supports positive activities for kids and health-related organizations across the country. Arizona Cardinals star receiver and six-time Pro Bowler Larry Fitzgerald hosts the family-focused event, which, in the past, has showcased the softball skills and sunflower-seed-spitting prowess of such NFL stars as Anquan Boldin, Donovan McNabb, and Kurt Warner. The evening starts with a bang as this year's participating players compete in a home-run derby, followed directly by the all-star game.
