Rochester Americans Hall of Famer Jody Gage will be among several local celebrities and professional athletes participating in the fourth annual LeSean McCoy Foundation Charity Softball Game on Sunday, June 4, at Frontier Field. McCoy and his Buffalo Bills teammates will take on a team of local heroes comprised of police, firefighters and emergency medical technicians.
Gage, a three-time Calder Cup winner and member of the American Hockey League Hall of Fame, will play alongside Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott and current Bills players Rod Streater, Jonathan Williams, Andre Holmes, Matt Milano and Lorenzo Alexander.
Gates open at 1 p.m. with The Home Run Derby beginning at 2 p.m. and the game to follow at 3 p.m. Tickets for the event start as low as just $10 and are available at www.redwingsbaseball.com or by calling (585) 423-WING.
This year’s softball game will feature live autograph signings, a silent auction and several raffles. Proceeds from the event will be directed to the LeSean McCoy Foundation to provide educational and resource programs to disadvantaged youth and to raise awareness and funds directly benefitting individuals and families battling Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. LeSean’s grandmother, Maryann Branch, lost her battle with ALS.
