Reckless Kelly Hosts Annual Celebrity Softball Jam

TEXAS Country group RECKLESS KELLY hosted their CELEBRITY SOFTBALL JAM on SUNDAY, APRIL 19th at DELL DIAMOND in ROUND ROCK, TX.
Both teams had a good mix of former athletes, artists and media personalities, including NASCAR legend KYLE PETTY, CROSS CANADIAN RAGWEED, OLYMPIC swimmer BRENDAN HANSON, RANDY ROGERS BAND, MLB pitcher GREG SWINDELL (formerly of the CINCINNATI REDS, HOUSTON ASTROS, MINNESOTA TWINS, among others) and more.
CLEAR CHANNEL Country KAGG (AGGIE 96)/BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION MD/afternooner ADAM DRAKE also partook in the game, hitting a double off of one of SWINDELL's pitches.
While the final score read 14-12 in favor of the "Sultans" versus the "One-Hit Wonders," the officials ruled that the Sultans were disqualified because of too many "at-bats" by SWINDELL. The game-winning trophy was given to the "Wonders" manager WILLY BRAUN.
All proceeds from the event benefit three youth-related causes - MIRACLE LEAGUE at TOWN & COUNTRY, LITTLE LEAGUE of AUSTIN and the scholarship fund of the AUSTIN ELKS LODGE #201.
