Woops, wrong Fergie & Friends…but now that I have your attention
If you’re going to be in AZ this week, come down to Hohokam Stadium on St. Patrick’s day this Wednesday March 17th for the 3rd Annual Fergie & Friends celebrity baseball game for charity.
You’ll rub shoulders with Hall of Famers – Ferguson Jenkins, Billy Williams, Harmon Killebrew, Rollie Fingers, Gaylord Perry, Meadowlark Lemon and Bobby Bell plus other former Cubs stars like Ron Santo, Keith Moreland, Dave Kingman, Randy Hundley, Lee Smith, Jody Davis, Bob Dernier, Rich Nye and Glenn Beckert.
$10 general admission or $25 VIP tickets that include an on field meet and greet from 5 to 5:45 pm. Gates open at 4:00 pm. Autograph session with Hall of Famers in the concourse prior to the game (I think they charge for these, it is for charity). Game begins at 7 pm.
Some local celebrities along with our Hohokam organist George Kiefer and yours truly will be on the team going up against Fergie and his friends…George and I will basically just try to not embarrass ourselves.
