Thomas “Moose” Praytor will team up with A.J. McCarron again along with former Cubs Major League pitcher Jon Lieber and host of others for a celebrity Softball game at Hank Aaron Stadium on July 22nd to Benefit Buddy Ball.
Buddy Ball is a League for special needs players from ages 5-21. Everyone gets to play and has a buddy on the field with them cheering them on. The League is designed for the players but the “Buddies” tend to be rewarded as much as the players.
Next weekend will be a busy one for the Mobile, Alabama driver. Friday night Praytor will be in Indianapolis competing in the Sioux Chief PowerPEX 200 before racing back to Mobile for the Buddy Ball Benefit at the Hank.
“We are going to have to hustle to get back from Indy for the Game but I’m really looking forward to it. Some of the kids will be there and it’s all about the kids they really get you going,” said Praytor. “I don’t know if I’m playing with AJ (McCarron) or against him but I hope he pitches so I can take him deep. Now Lieber is another story, I hope we are on the same team!”
AJ McCarron is a 3 time BCS National Championship Quarterback currently with the Cincinnati Bengals and Jon Leiber is a former University of South Alabama player who spent 14 years in the big leagues with Cubs and Yankees.
The fundraising softball game, autograph session and silent auction begins at 4:30 and will be followed by a BayBears regular home game. The BayBears will take on the Chattanooga Lookouts at 7:05. It’s Cap Night at the BayBears and the first 1,000 fans will get a free BayBears cap. Tickets are $10 with $5 going to Buddy Ball and includes both games!
