For several years, the Donald Driver Charity Softball Game was a highlight of the summer for Green Bay Packers fans and local charities in the Green Bay and Fox Cities area. Last year, Jordy Nelson took over the game from Driver and continued the tradition, and it renews again this Sunday at Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton.
The game, which supports the Young Life charity, features a whopping 44 members of the Packers' squad, split up into teams by their position on offense or defense. The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, hosts of the game, have the full list of participants in a press release here.
Joining Nelson on the offensive team will be five fellow starters: Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Quarless, Josh Sitton, and T.J. Lang. The defense features seven projected starters, including Morgan Burnett, Sam Shields, Casey Hayward, Clay Matthews, Sam Barrington, Letroy Guion, and Mike Daniels. Nine rookies are also participating, including the Packers' top two draft picks, cornerbacks Damarious Randall (an accomplished centerfielder) and Quinten Rollins.
Tickets are still available for the game, which begins at 1:00 PM Central on Sunday, June 14th. Click the link above to go to the Timber Rattlers' website for more details.
