Mark Cuban, Terrell Owens are among Dirk Nowitzki’s celebrity baseball game all-stars on June 29th in Frisco, Texas. Goose Gossage and David Justice have been chosen to manage two baseball teams made up of some of the biggest names in professional sports—alas, none of the sports is baseball.
In the lineup, of course, you’ve got Nowitzki—with a strike zone as large as the Brandenburg Gate. Then, there’s his boss, Mavs owner and Shark Tank co-star Mark Cuban and Mavs general manager Donnie Nelson. Other players include the easy-to-manage Terrell Owens, former Dallas Mavs Brian Cardinal, Michael Finley, Devin Harris and Eduardo Najera, New Orleans Saints QB Seneca Wallace and former Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner.
Held on June 29, this is the 12th annual event, which used to be hosted by former hockey legend Mike Modano. Since his retirement from pro sports, he was happy to hand the reins over to his pal Nowitzki.
Proceeds will go to the Dirk Nowitzki Foundation and the Heroes Foundation, which brings sports training and competition to children and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities.
Tickets are available now for $8-17 through Ticketmaster or call 800-745-3000.
Tickets are also available at the Dr Pepper Ballpark Box Office during office hours. Will call will open at 10 a.m. June 29. Tickets will also be available at the door.
