Fifth Annual Celebrity Softball Challenge
Come cheer on your favorites in support of the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund

June 01, 2013

What could be better than spending a summer evening at the ball park? On Thursday, June 13th check out players from the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, mascots, media personalities and other sports stars battle it out in a seven inning celebrity softball game. This event, presented by The Tony Steward Foundation and benefiting the Indiana Children’s Wish Foundation, honors Caroline Symmes, a Wish child who was involved with the inaugural softball event and passed away in December 2009. Roy Hibbert, All Star Center for the Indiana Pacers and Robert Mathis, Pro Bowl Defensive End of the Indianapolis Colts will host the event.

Gates at Victory Field will open at 5 p.m. with the game starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are just $7 and children ages 3 and under are free! A special family ticket package (4 tickets) for $20 is also available. Tickets are available at or can be purchased at the Victory Field box office.

Indy’s Child will be there in the kids’ area designed just for them. Ever wonder how your child would look on the cover of our magazine? Find out by having them strike a pose in our mock cover!

Proceeds from the event will help Indiana Children’s Wish Fund grant wishes to Indiana children, ages 3 -18, who suffer from a life-threatening illness. Indiana Children’s Wish Fund has granted over 3,000 wishes within the past 28 years to Indiana children. For more information on the Indiana Children’s Wish fund, visit

So, root root root for the home team and meet us at the ball park on June 13th!
