2013 MLB All-Star Legends Game: Which Celebrity Will Have the Best Game?
For years, the top stars in Hollywood have tried their hands at countless charity events involving some kind of sport. So, it’s no surprise when actors and actresses eagerly trade their makeup crew in for a baseball and a bat. With that being said, the 2013 MLB Legends All-Star Game is one of the best examples of the big-screen stars heading to the diamond.
From comedians to 10-time MLB All-Stars, the celebrity softball game taking place at Citi Field on Sunday is surely going to be something to watch.
The most notable player is hardly a comedian or a even a New York Mets great, however.
Josh Wege is competing in this year’s Legends Game and is probably the only man/woman on the field who deserves the “legendary” label. An ex-U.S. Marine, Wege lost both of his legs fighting for his country. A vehicle that Wege was in back in 2009, was struck with an improvised explosive device. Since that time, Wege has shown us all the definition of perserverance simply by playing the game that he loves. Wege has been a member of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team since its creation in 2011 and MLB is honored to have the 23 year old slugger competing in the 2013 Legends Game.
This isn’t the first time that a player from the Wounded Warrior Team has been invited to the “Midsummer classic.” Last year, Wounded Warrior stars Matt Kinsey and Saul Bosquez both went 3-3 in the game with Kinsey being honored after the contest with the game’s Most Valuable Player Award.
