It’s getting to be almost time for the 8th Annual Reckless Kelly Celebrity Softball Jam!
The Celebrity Softball Jam will take place May 15 at Dell Diamond in Round Rock and it combines nine innings of fun-filled, athleticism-optional softball with a talent-packed postgame concert on two stages in centerfield.
The long list of musicians and athletes that have participated in the past include Kevin Fowler, Randy Rogers, Los Lonely Boys, Ray Benson, Hayes Carll, Muzzie Braun, Dale Watson, Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, Kyle Park, The Trishas, Midnight River Choir, Pauline Reese, Kyle Petty, Norm Charlton, Bret Boone, Kevin Millar, Eric Winston, Brooks Kieschnick, Jesse James Leija, Curtis Thigpen, Ahmad Brooks, Kirk Dressendorfer and Greg Swindell.
Led by brothers Willy and Cody Braun, the band wanted to create a signature event with friends from the worlds of music and sports combining America’s pastime and music to benefit Austin’s youth. In eight years, the Reckless Kelly Celebrity Softball Jam has raised over $300,000 for area youth leagues (South Austin Little League, Balcones Little League, Montopolis Little League, Del Valley Little League, The Miracle League at Town & Country, The Miracle League of San Antonio, Greater East Austin Youth Association and RBI Austin) including a $150,000 renovation of Mabson Field in East Austin.
The 2016 lineup of players and performers will be announced soon BUT you can get early bird rate tickets ($10.00) NOW by clicking here: http://www.rkcsj.org/.
