Caroline Symmes Celebrity Softball Challenge

Join the fun at this year's event!


June 2014

Looking for a fun summer activity for the entire family? Consider an evening out at the ballpark for a good cause.

On Thursday, June 26th, the sixth annual Caroline Symmes Celebrity Softball Challenge will be held at Victory Field. Local celebrities will participate in the seven-inning softball tournament that benefits Indiana Children's Wish Fund and honors Caroline Symmes, a Wish child who passed away in December 2009 and was involved in the inaugural softball event.

Those expected to attend include players for the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers, mascots and local media personalities. Roy Hibbert, All Star Center for the Indiana Pacers, and Robert Mathis, Pro Bowl Defensive End for the Indianapolis Colts, will host this event presented by the Tony Stewart Foundation. Dave Calabro, WTHR-TV sports director, and Pat McAfee, Indianapolis Colts player, will serve as co-masters of ceremony.

Terry Ceaser-Hudson, executive director of Indiana Children's Wish Fund, says families will enjoy everything about the day. "This is an amazing event, bringing together celebrities, Wish children and our community."

Gates open at 5 p.m. Ceaser-Hudson recommends families first visit the kid's area presented by Indy's Child. The Interactive Game Area includes games, face painting, crafts and local mascots.

Prior to the game, fans can also watch the "Budweiser Home Run Derby," held by 1070 THE FAN. Derby participants must pre-register through THE FAN to compete for prizes and awards.
