In the past, the Cardinals have held Fan Fest the Saturday of minicamp, which always came one of the first couple of weekends in May. Minicamp no longer can be on the weekend — new CBA rules — and so Fan Fest has moved as well. It will still be held on the middle minicamp day. Now, that’s a Wednesday, June 13, and because of the time of year, it will be part of an evening practice at University of Phoenix Stadium. More details to come.
In the meantime, if you are looking to see some Cardinals stars Saturday, you are in luck. Larry Fitzgerald is holding his annual softball game to raise money for his First Down Fund charity. It’ll be out at Salt River Fields where the Diamondbacks hold spring training (you can get tickets here) with first pitch at 1:30 p.m. And, fitting for Fitz, he’s lined up a pretty good roster of athletic celebrities.
The list Fitz provided includes teammates Adrian Wilson, Darnell Dockett and Patrick Peterson, along with former NBA great Gary Payton, Terrell Owens, Kurt Warner, Anquan Boldin, Jared Allen, Greg Jennings, Steven Jackson, Tommie Harris, Roy Williams, Donovan McNabb, DeSean Jackson, DeAngelo Hall and LeSean McCoy.
I’m not sure Fitz is quite as good of a softball player as he is on the football field, but it’s for charity, right?
