Dirk Nowitzki’s 2017 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game
With the basketball season behind him, Dirk Nowitzki will shift his focus to baseball as he hosts Dirk Nowitzki’s 2017 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game presented by BaylorScott&White Medical Center. Game goers are encouraged to come out early for family-fun festivities and a Heroes Special Olympics All-Star Softball Game plus post-game fireworks to round out the evening.
For the 16th year, two baseball teams made up of celebrity players will slug it out for nine innings of hard-charging, umpires-umping, trash-talking, base-stealing, home run-hitting baseball. Proceeds will benefit the Dirk Nowitzki Foundation and the Heroes Foundation.
Scheduled to appear are Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott, Dez Bryant, Ezekiel Elliott, Dan Bailey, and more; tennis legend Andy Roddick; Dallas Mavericks J.J. Barea, Seth Curry, Devin Harris, and others; actor Geoff Stults; former Texas Rangers great Michael Young; and more (roster subject to change).
