GRAND CHUTE, WI - The Green
Bay Packers will trade footballs and shoulder pads for softballs and bats at
Time Warner Cable Field on Sunday, June 5, 2011.
The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and Packers wide receiver Donald Driver
have announced the return of the Donald Driver Charity Softball Game presented
by Kwik Trip to the home of the Midwest League affiliate of the Milwaukee
Brewers. Game time is 1:05pm.
Driver is hosting the event for the fourth consecutive year. The annual event features a home run hitting contest and a game between the offensive and defensive squads of the Green Bay Packers.
"I can't wait to take the field for year number four and give fans a good game for a great cause," said Driver. "The fan support has been awesome. It's allowed out foundation to positively impact a number of quality organizations and people.
"And the defense is on a losing streak which is nice too!"
