New Orleans Saints Pro Bowl guard Ben Grubbs wants revenge – but it’s all for a good cause.
Grubbs is hosting his annual charity softball game on Thursday, May 15 at Zephyr Field in Metairie with more than 30 current Saints players expected to participate.
The game is open to the public. Tickets go on sale Monday (Feb. 24) at 10 a.m.
at all Ticketmaster locations, Ticketmaster Charge by Phone (1-800-745-3000
), online at Ticketmaster.com and at the Zephyr Field ticket office.
The second annual Ben Grubbs #66 Foundation softball showdown features a fun-filled Home Run Derby at 6 p.m. followed by a game with the Saints Offense playing the Saints Defense.
The Defense trounced the Offense 10-2 in last year’s contest, so Grubbs and his offensive teammates are already plotting ways to get even.
“The players had a great time last year, but the offense wasn’t happy with the final score,” said Grubbs, who joined the Saints as free agent prior to the 2012 season. “We raised a lot of money to help the Boys and Girls Clubs in the New Orleans area, and this year we want to continue with that success. It’s family-friendly for the fans and I appreciate everyone who comes out and supports us.”
Proceeds from the event will benefit the not-for-profit 501(c)(3) Ben Grubbs #66 Foundation, which supports local Boys and Girls Clubs. For more information on Grubbs’ foundation, which was founded in 2009, visit www.bengrubbs66.com
