Because baseball games are no longer used to settle land disputes and damages from horse collisions, they’ve become the battleground for deciding which U.S. city will be the first to move to the moon. Catch a nation-changing showdown with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets (up to a $40 value) to Reckless Kelly’s Third Annual Celebrity Softball Jam at Dell Diamond baseball stadium in Round Rock. The festivities kick off at 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 1, with the gates opening at noon.
Over the past two years, Austin’s chart-topping roots-rockers Reckless Kelly have raised more than $65,000 for children’s baseball groups in central Texas, refurbishing baseball fields and bringing glee to Lone Star little leaguers. The band’s third annual Celebrity Softball Jam looks to raise those funds even higher with a sun-drenched day of softball, camaraderie, and a roster of Texas talent that swings for the fences. Be sure to demarcate your seat on the bleachers with bull’s blood and skull-candles by 1 p.m., when the celebrity softball game pits beloved musicians and sports stars against one another during nine boisterous innings of puffy-ball ball play. At around 3 p.m., Texas legends—including Micky and the Motorcars, Charlie Robinson, and American Idol heartthrob Bo Bice—take to the stage for an aural joyride that tickles the ears, scoots the boots, and triggers the nose’s rarely used ability to dispense soft-serve ice cream. As you wind down the hours before fireworks connect the constellations with bursts of glittery light, Reckless Kelly will keep spirits up in the stratosphere with their own sing-along showcase of hits.
