Celebrity Softball Jam

If Springtime for Hitler makes Deutschland happy and gay, what does springtime mean for Austinites?
The answer: Daily Double. Baseball and rock ‘n’ roll. (And big ass checks?) Reckless Kelly and the Round Rock Express are up to bat once again when the 2011 Third Annual Celebrity Softball Jam returns to Dell Diamond. With proceeds benefiting the Dell Valley Little League and The Miracle League of Austin, that’s what I call a TRIPLE PLAY!

Gates open at noon and the game begins at 1 PM, so get there early to guarantee you don’t miss what is sure to be the hardest rocking National Anthem you see this baseball season.

Participants this year include your gracious hosts, Reckless Kelly, recipients of such awards as Best Country Band (Austin Music Awards) and Best Live Band (Lone Star Music Award); Micky & the Motorcars, taking a break from their grueling 200-days-a-year touring schedule; Bo Bice (…nuff said) and many more celebrities with a love of the great American pastime.

So while springtime in Deutschland may evoke images of stormtroopers, moustaches, and the master race, come kick off springtime American style:  with baseball, bands, and a cold, refreshing Budweiser. Oh, and did I mention FIREWORKS to follow the game? AMERICA, you know the rest!

Proceeds from the event benefit the Dell Valley Little League, The Miracle League (a program whose mission is to create opportunities for children, disabled or not, to play on the baseball field), and other local organizations. Reckless Kelly’s Celebrity Softball Jam has raised over $65,000 for these foundations in the last two years alone. Tickets are $20 on the day of the show, and only $15 if purchased in advance. Children 12 and under get in FREE when accompanied by a paying adult.
