I realize players can't live life in a bubble, but seeing Bruno's story about Roy Hibbert co-chairing a charity softball game that will include a few tammates made me shudder since the event comes on the heels of A.J. Price's recent charity basketball game experience which ended in an ambulance ride.
Hibbert will be joined by teammates Danny Granger, Dahntay Jones and Josh McRoberts in the game. Pacers TV sideline reporter Stacy Paetz also will participate. Jeff Foster and Quinn Buckner will serve as celebrity coaches. Boomer and members of the Pacemates also will be on hand.
Hopefully none of the players donate a kneecap to the cause or any other body part for that matter. From the looks of Roy's swing in the accompanying picture, we might not have to worry about the big fella running too far on the bases.
