Want to see celebrities play bad baseball for a good cause? Then snag a seat to Dirk Nowitzki’s 2018 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game presented by Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Frisco.

On Friday evening, June 8th at Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco, two baseball teams made up of celebrity players will once again slug it out for seven innings of hard-charging, umpires-umpping, trash-talking, base-stealing, home run-hitting baseball!

Dirk is currently rounding up his sports and celeb buddies for what will be the 17th annual Heroes game.

Update! Survivors of the recent Santa Fe High School shooting, Rome Shubert and Trenton Beazley, will throw out the first pitch. Rome and Trenton are star baseball players at Santa Fe High School. Both were shot that tragic day but showed heroism despite their injuries. Rome was shot in the back of the neck (the bullet went through), and Trenton was grazed in the back. Amazingly, Rome, Trenton and the Santa Fe baseball team were able to make their baseball game just a day after the shooting.
