Well, another Celebrity Softball Game in the books. And this game will definitely be the one most people remember! Not only did the Zoners cream the No Namers 12-??? (something like 5 or 6), Justin Acri was FINALLY on a winning team, Buzz Babe Courtney sang the National Anthem ever so beautifully, RJ Hawk injured his knee in practice BEFORE the game by trying to catch a fly ball that caused him to topple over the cement wall in the beer garden, Anne Jansen with back spasms and all played catcher the entire game, and the biggest event of the night...Justin Acri running over Tommy Smith at homeplate causing an injury that will go down in Celebrity Softball history...a dislocated finger.
Many more memories were made during the game. And folks, if you missed it, well, you missed not only a memorable game, but the last Celebrity Softball game ever. (sniff)
I have posted a few pictures (below) of the "collision." Check out more pictures from our Buzz photographer DeWaine Duncan in our PHOTO GALLERY. AND, our our FACEBOOK page has more pictures and a video from Lauren Clark from Sync that is just too funny.
Take a look at the Buzz video of the game that is posted on our website. Make up your own mind...was it Justin or the ball that caused the injury?
BIG THANKS to our volunteer umps...Phil Zaffarano, Al Malero and Don Bolson.
Thank you to all of the celebrities who played! And thank you to all of you who came out to see us make complete fools of ourselves... it was a game to remember!
