ROUND ROCK, TX - The party just keeps getting bigger! Additional artists, athletes and media members have been announced as part of the ninth annual Reckless Kelly Celebrity Softball Jam. This year's event will take place on Sunday, September 10 at Dell Diamond.
The event will kick off at noon with an antic-filled softball game featuring former major leaguers Josh Beckett, Norm Charlton, Brooks Kieschnick and Glenn Wilson along with former Longhorns and NFL players Quan Cosby and Kasey Studdard.
