The LeSean McCoy Foundation has received commitments for the Celebrity Softball Game being held at Frontier Field on Saturday, June 13 at 7 p.m.
Several of McCoy’s teammates have committed to participate in the event. EJ Manuel and Sammy Watkins have agreed to play along with offensive linemen Cyrus Kouandjio and Cordy Glenn and tight end Chris Gragg. In addition, Jerome Felton and running back Boobie Dixon complete the announcement. More names will be revealed later.
McCoy, his new Buffalo Bills teammates and other celebrities will take on a team of local heroes comprised of police and firefighters. A home run derby will take place at 6 p.m. with the game beginning at 7 p.m. Gates will open at 5 p.m.
A limited number of LeSean McCoy VIP packages are still available for $1,000. Each package will include:

Proceeds from this event will go towards The LeSean McCoy Foundation to raise funds and awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
ALS is a disease that touches McCoy on a personal level. His grandmother, Maryann Branch, passed away from ALS in 2010. LeSean made a commitment to his grandfather in the weeks preceding his grandmother’s death to utilize his professional football platform to raise awareness, advocacy and funds to eradicate ALS.
The invariably fatal neurodegenerative disease strikes as many as 30,000 Americans at any given time. The fight to eradicate ALS is extremely important to LeSean and serves as one of the founding purposes of Shades of Greatness, Inc.
Tickets are on sale now at the Frontier Field Ticket Office, online at RedWingsBaseball.com or by calling (585) 423-WING. Tickets are $20 for 100 level and $15 for 200 level.
