Three Rivers Celebrity Softball Game A Week Away
The second annual Three Rivers Celebrity Softball Game, presented by The Coury Firm and hosted by Dorin Dickerson, will be played at Wild Things Park in Washington, Pennsylvania on Saturday, July 16 at 7 p.m. The game will feature two teams consisting of celebrities, athletes and entertainers from Pittsburgh and around the world.
The game will be played for the benefit of The Heyward House. The Heyward House, founded by Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward, has been serving youth in the Pittsburgh community since 2015. Last year’s Celebrity Softball game raised over $10,000 for The Heyward House.
“This is all for The Heyward House,” Washington Wild Things president and general manager Tony Buccilli said. “This is all for giving back to people in Pittsburgh. Your $10 ticket is super cheap. We donate half of that back to Cam’s foundation.”
Buccilli also said that there will be several items to bid on with proceeds going to The Heyward House as well. Bids can be made both at the game and at home for unique items.
The two teams in the game will be Team Burgh, presented by 84 Lumber, versus Team World, presented by The Tull Family Foundation.
Team Pittsburgh is coached by Andrew Fillipponi of 93.7 The Fan and features local personalities like Heyward, Najee Harris, Kenny Pickett and Mitch Trubisky of the Steelers, Dickerson, Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D., and Casey Desmith of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Team World is coached by Paul Zeise of 93.7 The Fan, and features stars from around the world like Tennessee Titans edge Bud Dupree, sports analyst Jalen Rose, former National Football League cornerback Malcolm Jenkins, Indianapolis Colts cornerback Kenny Moore II, Canadian professional wrestler Chelsea Green, and Harlem Globetrotter Darnell “Speedy” Artis.
Kids Fest, presented by Clearview Federal Credit Union, and The Terrible Tailgate, the official tailgate of Steeler Nation, will both be held from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Wild Things Park in anticipation of the game. Kids Fest will feature field access, bounce houses and other inflatables for free for kids 12 and under. The Terrible Tailgate will act as the exclusive kickoff event of the game.
Tickets can be found through the Washington Wild Things website, washingtonwildthings.com. According to Buccilli all of the lower level is sold out, but there are several more seats still available.
