St. Louis Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher will host his annual “Coach Fisher & Friends” Celebrity Softball Game on Sunday, June 7, 2015 at T.R. Hughes Ballpark in O’Fallon, Mo.
The event, which is presented by Edward Jones, will feature a celebrity home run derby, softball game and post-game fireworks show. Proceeds from the event will benefit five charities: The BackStopppers, The Jack and J.T. Snow Scientific Research Foundation, Mercy Ministries, Wounded Warrior Project and Catch-A-Dream Foundation.
“Each year, our players really look forward to this fun and unique evening for charity,” said Fisher. “It’s a great family-friendly event that allows our fans to get an up-close look at our players and their personalities away from the football field. For some of our players, their athleticism on the football field transfers to the softball field, but for others it can be a comedy of errors, which makes the game all the more entertaining and memorable.”
After three successful years at GCS Ballpark in Sauget, Ill., this year’s event will take place at T.R. Hughes Ballpark in O’Fallon, Mo.
“We really enjoyed the tremendous hospitality and partnership with the Gateway Grizzlies and their staff over the past three years,” said Fisher. “In planning for this year’s game, we heard from many of our fans who wanted us to bring the game to Missouri, so we’re glad that we were able to get that done for our fans and we look forward to selling out T.R. Hughes.”
The Coach Fisher & Friends festivities will kick off with the homerun derby at 5:45 p.m. followed by the celebrity softball game at 7 p.m. The event will conclude around 9 p.m. with a fireworks finale.
