Boomer & Carton To Take On NYPD In Celebrity Softball Game Saturday

Ryan, Tannenbaum Among Celebs Playing To Benefit PBA Widows and Children's Fund

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Celebs, softball and a great cause. Is there a better combination?

Come on out to Con-Ed Field in Manhattan (16th St. & Ave. C) on Saturday to watch the NYPD First Precinct take on a celebrity team led by our very own Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton.

The game is scheduled for 5 p.m., with gates opening one hour prior. Admission is $20, benefiting the PBA Widows and Children’s Fund. BBQ and drinks are included, and children under 10 are free.

“The goal is to raise over $10,000,” Carton said Friday.

As for the celebs, Boomer said that Jets coach Rex Ryan was a late addition and will be bringing defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman with him. Also playing, according to the WFAN co-hosts: former Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum, ex-Jet Bart Scott (can’t wait!), and American Idol alum Constantine Maroulis.

“I can’t play him at shortstop,” Carton said of Ryan. “He’s got no range.”
