Location is King Boring Field on Reckinger Rd. near the corner of Greenfield Rd. / Michigan Ave., Dearborn, MI.
This event will benefit the CATCH Foundation & Stephen Tulloch Foundation
The softball event will be open to the public and will cost $10 to enter the park (children under 5 are free). The game will have concessions provided by Happy’s Pizza and opportunities to meet some of Detroit’s favorite athletes.
“Last year was the first year I hosted this event with Tully and of course, my team won and we’re looking forward to taking on Team Tulloch again,” Burleson said. “It’s just an overall great time, the fans get to come out, see all of us play softball, we get to interact with them and raise money for our foundations at the same time. It’s a great way to kick off the summer.”
“I’m really excited to keep this yearly tradition going, raising money for both my and Nate’s foundation really helps kick start all the programs we run throughout the year here in the community. Operation 55 keeps growing and I really love having these big events to bring out the fans and have a good time. I think this year will be even bigger. I have some secret weapons I’m bringing in for my team this year so expect Team Tulloch to come out with a win,” Tulloch stated.
Past participating celebrities include, Detroit Lions Calvin Johnson, Louis Delmas, Jahvid Best, Sammie Hill, Willie Young, along with other NFL stars Austin Pettis, Cato June, Braylon Edwards, Usama Young, Aaron Maybin, Derrick Williams, former NFL all-pros Herman Moore and Lomas Brown, NBA players such as Jonas Jerebko, Charlie Villanueva, Tayshon Prince, Austin Daye, Rick Mahorn, Ben Wallace and more!
