I was very excited and honored on August 10th, 2014 to be participating in my first Celebrity All-Star Softball event at the Jeffrey Osborne Celebrity Classic!
“The Pawtucket Red Sox are pleased to announce that they will host The Jeffrey Osborne Celebrity All-Star Softball Classic, featuring Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, at McCoy Stadium” The game was so much fun! The stadium seats were almost sold out with roughly nine thousand fans coming out to watch their favorite entertainers, athletes and stars play ball all while supporting a great cause!
Here is a cute pic of Chris Tucker, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Nisha Sadekar and me:)
The teams were separated by East vs West! Living in my sparkly city of Las Vegas, I had no other choice than to support the #WestSide:) The West Side had a great team that compromised of Me, My Sister Nisha, The host himself, Jeffrey Osborne, Jeffrey Osborne Jr. Ced The Entertainer, Salli-Richardson-Whitfield, Dondre Whitfield, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Chris Tucker, Smokey Robinson, Eddie Levert, Roland Martin, James Worthy and Johnny Gill!
Our uniforms were so cute and colorful! The East Team had red and black jerseys and the West Team had Yellow and Purple (Lakers) color jerseys! My name on the back of my jersey was the “Golf Fashionista” I wore the jersey proudly! As for my Softball skills, who knew I would be somewhat of a decent player. I was a bit nervous hitting my fist shot because I had never played before so I wasn’t sure what the outcome would be! Turned out, I wasn’t as bad as I thought, I batted in three innings and had two base hits! #WooHoo
Check out the video my sister took of my getting onto first base:
Following an amazing game full of great fans and friends, the Jeffrey Osborne Classic put on an incredible post game firework show for everyone to enjoy!
Thank you to Jeffrey Osborne and his team for having me participate this year! I had such a great time being a part of the event and around some influential and fun people!
